At CanMar we know the value of the land.

It’s our responsibility to ensure that we take care of the land we farm on, doing everything we can to contribute to a better, brighter, and more sustainable future.

CanMar Foods is the largest processor of food-grade flax in North America.

With 26,000 acres of land, we are committed to maintaining or improving soil health and fertility. To accomplish this, we adhere to zero deforestation,  no irrigation, no till and continuous crop rotation, allowing the land to thrive in its most natural state. The pristine growing conditions of the Canadian Prairies help us to grow our premium flaxseed, while leaving behind a low carbon and water footprint.

In addition, flax and hemp plants are naturally pest resistant, eliminating the need for chemical-based pesticides. All of this helps to maintain the surrounding soil quality and protect the insects and plants that live alongside. CanMar’s flax and hemp are also Non-GMO, meaning it is grown naturally and doesn’t use genetic mutation to enhance crops.

Being a leading flax processor comes with its share of responsibilities. By taking a conscientious approach to farming we can continue to produce the highest quality flax in the world, while preserving the land we call home.
