A VITAL INGREDIENT
Vegetable oil from Australia’s canola crop forms the basis of many of Australia’s favourite foods and snacks. GrainCorp Australia’s newest and most advanced canola oil processing plant is located in Numurkah, 2.5 hours north of Melbourne, Victoria.
This oil is used in a wide variety of everyday items such as infant formula, margarines and spreads, pastry and of course frying oil for many of our favourite snacks! From chips to donuts, this oil is a vital ingredient – crushed and refined in Victoria.
Once crushed, the remaining part of the seed, known as meal, is then used as feedstock. Feedstock is very important in a year like this one as many farmers and produces use feedstock to complement their feeding programs.
