The plant has a fully integrated control system. Typical operating staff is 3 people/shift and plant is run on a continuous 24/7 basis. With recent improvements to the plant, multiple oilseeds can be used as feedstock with minor configuration changes. To date, five commodities, soybeans, canola, sunflowers, corn germ, and flax have been crushed to produce super degummed oils that meet or exceed industry specifications.

The facility was kosher certified in 2008 and was recently certified for organic processing. During the organic certification inspection, the inspector was very impressed with the overall cleanliness of the facility and the thorough and well-written identity preservation program. This is an excellent opportunity for a new owner.
