Nexera Deliveries Current At Dreyfus Plant

Deliveries of Nexera canola to the new Louis Dreyfus crushing plant in Yorkton, Sask., are back on track, according to Mark Woloshyn, Dow AgroSciences’ Nexera canola brand leader.

Last fall and earlier this year, the plant wouldn’t take scheduled del iveries from a number of farmers. The culprit was a combination of startup problems exacerbated by cold weather, back-to-back big canola crops and a Nexera oil customer that didn’t take delivery of oil as soon as expected, Woloshyn said.

“I think they (Dreyfus) could’ve taken a little different communications strategy,” he added. “It wouldn’t have eliminated the problem, but it might have alleviated it.”

The crushing plant is now running better than expected and Nexera deliveries are current, he said. [email protected]
