Project Summary

Pacific Coast Canola broke ground in September 2011 on its canola crushing facility located in Warden, WA. The facility will produce expeller-pressed canola oil and high quality canola meal. The plant is the first commercial-scale canola crushing operation west of the Rockies.

The plant was completed in late 2012 and became operational in early 2013. Approximately 45 full time employees operate the facility.
