Our Difference

About Us

Hemp Oil Canada was incorporated in 1998 and opened Canada’s first hemp-exclusive seed processing facility. In the years since, we’ve worked passionately to expand the availability of hemp foods and build new markets. We now export globally from our two state-of-the-art processing facilities in Manitoba, Canada.

We’ve led the hemp industry by setting food safety and quality standards and creating new hemp food ingredients to meet our customers’ growing needs. You can expect industry-leading product specifications and food safety standards from Hemp Oil Canada.

We’re proud to announce that we’ve received self-affirmed Generally Recognized as Safe (GRAS) status, and have officially submitted to FDA for GRAS Notification. To broaden consumer access to the nutritional benefits of hemp seeds, we’re the only company to proactively gather and provide the scientific evidence necessary to affirm this sought-after American Food and Drug Administration designation recognizing a substance as safe among experts.

 

 

Supply Chain Integration

Our integrated supply chain allows us to ensure quality through every phase of the production process, from seed genetics through to the final product.

Seed Genetics

Since quality starts with seed genetics, we partner with leading seed breeders and have exclusive variety rights to the hemp food industry’s proven performers.

Field

Our Farm Operations team works directly with farmers, offering guidance and agronomic tips throughout the growing and harvesting process. Every lot can be traced back to the farm it was grown on.

Testing

Hemp Seeds are tested after harvest for several different attributes; microbiological quality, physical purity, and chemical contents including THC. According to government regulations, all hemp seed must contain THC levels less than 10 parts-per-million (PPM).

Storage

Our Farm Operations team works directly with farmers to ensure quality is maintained throughout the storage process.

Seed Cleaning

Before we consider purchasing Hemp Seed, it goes through a rigorous seed cleaning process to remove contaminants.

We partner with industry-leading seed cleaners that meet our quality standards.

Testing

Tests are done to confirm quality and food safety. The test includes a range of microbiological tests, physical purity tests, and chemical quality tests.

The only seed that meets our rigorous quality and food safety standards will be brought into our facility for further processing.

Production

Hemp Seeds go to our dehulling room to make Hulled Hemp Seeds.

Production

Hemp Seeds go to our oil presses to make Hemp Oil.

Production

Final Product

Each lot of finished product is evaluated for appearance, color, odor, taste, and mouthfeel.

Testing

Before being released, our products are tested once more to ensure that our customers are receiving the highest-quality product possible before a Certificate of Analysis is issued.
