We’re master growers of rapeseed; we’ve been cultivating crops since
the 1940s - and we know just how to get the best out of them.
Oil can be extracted from the seed in two ways, either using a heat treatment
which benefits large scale production but yields a lower grade oil – or
by ‘cold pressing’ the seed which yields a higher grade of oil but
is not conducive to mass production.
We don’t use mass production techniques to extract the oil (no heat extraction,
de-gumming, bleaching); ours is virgin seed and ‘cold pressed’ in
order to retain its vital nutrients.
It’s free of any additives, chemicals, detergents or deodorisers – we
simply press the oil out of the seed, pass it through a filter and bottle it

so to get Omega 3 – you
need to introduce it to your diet.
