Hemp Oil Canada rebuilds after devastating fire

Manitoba hemp processing facility returns to operation after fire damaged key production building.

Just eight weeks after a fire claimed their production building, the management and staff of Hemp Oil Canada Inc. are pleased to announce that the company is once again able to begin processing hemp food products out of a temporary production plant in Ste. Agathe. This quick return to production will be welcome news to Hemp Oil Canada’s very patient customers.

On Sept. 23, 2013, a production plant fire completely destroyed the processing unit at Hemp Oil Canada's facility in Ste. Agathe, MB. The entire building and contents including all the processing machinery was 100 percent destroyed in the fire. Thankfully no one was injured in the fire.

“We are extremely proud of all our staff that have pulled together in light of this unfortunate incident, and rebuilt our production unit in less than eight weeks since the fire destroyed everything,” commented Mr. Shaun Crew, president and CEO. “We are very fortunate to have such a dedicated and committed group of employees who were able to rise to the challenge of rebuilding our operation and provided exceptional support to our customers during the interim.” 

Hemp Oil Canada is the largest producer and processor of hemp food ingredients in the world. As such, it was of paramount importance for the company to get back up and running as soon as possible to continue supplying product of the highest quality to its premiere markets in Canada, the USA and around the world.
