Pacific Coast Canola to deliver oil to Imperium Renewables

January 15, 2014 |

In Canada, Legumex Walker announced that its Pacific Coast Canola (PCC) subsidiary has finalized a six-month contract to deliver by truck a portion of its super degummed canola oil to Seattle-based Imperium Renewables. “We are proud to partner with Imperium, one of our local Washington State customers benefitting from our close proximity and load-out capabilities which allows us to ship multiple types of oil to our customers’ specifications,” said Matt Upmeyer, Chief Operations Officer at PCC.   “Coupled with the strong demand for canola oil and meal from our core food processing customers, the Imperium contract is another big step as we bring our facility to full capacity, which is great news for local canola farmers.”

“The biofuel industry is an important complementary market for our canola oil, and crush margins for oil produced for that market are currently in line with oil produced for our core food processing market,” said Joel Horn, President and Chief Executive Officer, Legumex Walker Inc. “Importantly, the Imperium business, because it is delivered by truck, helps relieve the outbound logistical challenges we are facing due to the North America-wide rail congestion problem.”
