Hi, I’m Canadian Canola. I was born here in Canada and over the past half-century I’ve seem to become quite the hot commodity around the globe.
I’m more Canadian than a Moose Jaw Mountie and right up there with maple syrup as the quintessential Canadian plant product. One might say I’m the Zamboni-driving, toque-wearing, beaver on skates of the global farming industry.
Sure, everyone knows I make a healthy salad and cook a mean French fry… but now I’m recognized for being in everything, like pet food, lipstick, and renewable biodiesel.
Did you know the name canola comes from “Canada” and “oil”? Grown primarily in Western Canada, canola has become one of our country’s most valuable agricultural exports.
