Sunora Foods - Canola and Food Oils - Calgary, Alberta, Canada

Welcome to Sunora Foods

Sunora Foods, based in Calgary, Alberta, Canada, has its roots in canola oil. The very name "Sunora" is derived from the sun golden canola flowers that grow in the shadow of the Canadian Rockies. With the growing recognition of the potential health benefits of canola oil, Sunora has grown substantially over the last two decades. Sunora is now internationally recognized for its canola oil and related canola products and is a major Canadian exporter of food oil. Its introduction of canola oil into new markets has elicited the support of health practitioners and nutritionists, and even the occasion endorsement of a head of state.

Canola FieldAlthough Sunora Foods has its roots in canola oil, many customers do turn to Sunora for a number of other food oils. Sunora, as a significant importer of olive oil, takes special pride in the taste and quality of its extra virgin olive oil. To other customers around the world, Sunora means corn oil or soybean oil. With its international trading capabilities, the company is often the best and most cost-effective source of corn oil and soybean oil.

Olive TreesIn addition to mainstream food oils, Sunora is well-known for its expeller extracted and organic food oils. These products appeal to customers looking for a more natural approach to their food. Sunora expeller extracted and organic products are packed under strict protocols, with appropriate controls in place. Our organic products, in particular, are certified by Quality Assurance International, a leading certifier of organic products. We have recently also joined the Non-GMO Project.

Food service products are generally offered in the convenient so-called Jug-in-Box. Drummed oil and other bulk products are available to food processors.
