Message from the President
2019 was a busy year for us. It all started off in style when our new Camelina seed product was named the big winner in the 2019 DUX Mieux Manger et Mieux Vivre competition in the ingredient category.
Our Signé caméline products have traveled, since in 2019, we began our export sales in France, China, Vietnam and the United States, in addition to Japan where we were already there. These new sales allow us to increase our production of camelina in the field. We are happy because our agronomists confirm that the production of camelina is part of a decrease in pesticide use in field crops, when it is produced in rotation, the previous year to the production of corn. Camelina production is an eco-responsible production and we are very proud of it!
These new exports allowed us to be a finalist in Montérégie Ouest in the new exporter category, during the Mercador competition, last November.
Also, in 2019, I was very proud to be named Farmer of the Year in Montérégie-Ouest, then to be recognized as Entrepreneurial Farmer 2019 at the Saturn provincial gala which took place in October.
Our Oliméga family has grown as we have had the pleasure of seeing three new people join us.
The entire team behind Signé caméline, including our associates, employees and I would like to thank you for your great support, dear ambassadors of Signé caméline products. Thank you for making this change and for incorporating our Signé caméline products into your recipes, and for sharing them with your family and guests.
Chantal Van Winden
President of Oliméga
