THE RESULT OF TRUE LOVE
Camelina of Sweden’s cold-pressed oil and dry-roasted seeds are sold as exclusive and healthy food products in selected grocery- and health food stores, but it is also exported abroad to for example South Korea. Due to the oil’s unique concentration of essential fatty acids and antioxidants, larger quantities are also sold to producers of beauty products, health products and pet food.
Today by Ranch is the only company in Sweden to cultivate camelina on a large scale. But if grain farmer Stefan Ranch hadn’t met and married sales director Therese, this may never have happened. Because where Stefan saw an exciting and historic crop, Therese saw a potential market for a next-generation super food. The rest as you say, is history. A very tasty one!
