Saskatchewan producers are among the world's largest mustard exporters. Saskatchewan's hot and dry summers yield the highest quality seed for processing, and warm and dry harvest conditions enhance crop quality and preserve stored seed quality. The Canadian mustard industry is supported by the most experienced scientific development and research teams, and employs the most technologically advanced production methods in the world. Our stringent cleaning and grading system ensures only the finest seed for consumer use.
