Who We Are

Proudly Canadian

CanMar Foods

Our products are produced by CanMar Foods Ltd. based out of Regina, SK.  CanMar has been in the business for over 12 years and in our state of the art food grade facility we specialize in the cleaning, roasting, and packaging of flaxseed. Through research and development, product experiments, and trials, CanMar has developed and owns a Canadian patent on a process which evenly roasts flaxseed to a consistent taste and identical colour.

While many consumers initially consume flaxseed for its nutritional value they choose golden roasted flaxseed for its taste and aroma!
