Your Canola Company
In 1993 Southern Oil (Pty) Ltd. revolutionised agriculture in the Western Cape with the introduction of Canola as a crop in South Africa. The objective was to process locally grown canola seeds and stimulate the growth of a revolutionary new product in the SA market place. What began as an ambitious enterprise development project, with the aim of creating jobs has grown from strength to strength and today SOILL is the leader in the ever growing Canola Oil market. Ever since opening its doors in 1996 SOILL’s goal was to provide farmers with an alternate income stream and still today we procure 100% of the South African canola crop and utilise only locally grown canola seed in the production of B-well Canola oil products. SOILL’s modern extraction plant and impressive oil refinery is located in the picturesque town of Swellendam in the Western Cape. SOILL’s commitment to develop the local community, ability to create jobs and development focus is the pride of Swellendam.

The 2017 season has been challenging from day one, with the low rainfall being the main reason. Canola being a rain fed crop had some great challenges to emerge in these drought conditions. But as the season progressed the crop recovered dramatically to a point where we predict that we will have a good harvest. The hectares were estimated at 17% more for the 2017 season at around 80 000 hectares.
Due to a lack of moisture in the eastern parts towards Albertinia and Mossel Bay not all the canola was planted. The estimate at the moment is around 76 000 hectares that will give a yield of between 95 000 and 115 000 tons. Canola also showed its ability to adapt to environmental conditions and recovered exceptionally well when we eventually received rain.
