Agricultural Fractionation 101 Workshop


Event Partner

This one-day workshop on February 25th, 2021 will explore the opportunities and related questions around crop-based food, and feed & ingredients processing. 

Fractionation 101 will provide key information for:

  • entrepreneurs, companies, and communities looking to build, supply or invest in fractionation or value-added processing
  • local governments, Indigenous communities, economic development groups, and financial institutions looking to facilitate this activity; and 
  • suppliers, food companies and consultants looking to engage in this activity.

The workshop will focus on practical topics in fractionation and processing, such as:

  • the various processes used to extract proteins and micro-ingredients from crops such as canola, pulses and hemp;
  • niche Indigenous food processing opportunities;
  • wet vs. dry extraction processes; markets for products and by-products; 
  • costs to construct processing facilities; 
  • key deciding factors when deciding to build and locate processing facilities; 
  • who is investing and financing these facilities;  
  • what local governments and others can do to attract these facilities to their area.
