The need for strong partnerships with growers and oil producers throughout the supply chain is crucial for the commercial production of Nuseed Omega-3 Canola production.
Clint Munro, Nuseed’s Global Lead for the omega-3 supply chain, who leads these efforts said: “Through our testing we’ve proven the products can deliver beyond yield solutions. So, our next challenge was finding partners throughout the supply chain who shared our mission to provide new solutions to global issues and understood that we are developing new markets.”
Munro said his approach was to look for businesses with a history of managing specialty canola and other products in an identity-preserved stewarded supply chain. Nuseed is very selective of its partners. Through agreements with growers and local experts, Nuseed facilitates production and delivery so that there is added value at every step, and for every participant in the Nuseed Value Chain.
This dedication to finding the right partners in production, led Nuseed to achieve the Excellence Through Stewardship (ETS) certification, the highest global standard in responsible management in agricultural biotechnology. ETS establishes product stewardship and quality management systems to ensure and validate the quality of Aquaterra® for aquafeed and Nutriterra® for human nutrition, both proprietary products derived from Nuseed Omega-3 Canola, for end-use customers.
All of this gives Nuseed’s Omega-3 Canola an advantage in the marketplace. Because of its innovative genetics, Nuseed is creating an entirely new market with value beyond commodity canola or other vegetable oils. It’s a new plant-based solution that is already generating interest in aquaculture and human nutrition markets.
