Iecavnieks & Co core industries:
The company processes oilseeds - rapeseed, flax seed and hemp seed. Process involves the extraction of cold-pressed, unrefined oils. Using cold-pressing technology, seeds are mechanically compressed, and then the oil is filtered. Unlike refined, such oils save all biologically active substances, monounsaturated, polyunsaturated fatty acids and vitamin E, natural colour, scent and taste, as oil is not extracted at high temperatures. Oil production process has a by-product called cake, which is popular farm animal food supplement.
Iecavnieks & Co manages about 500 hectares of agricultural land, cultivating crops such as rapeseed (Brassica napus 00 and 000), wheat (Triticum aestivum) and oil flax (Linum usitatissimum).
