About Sunora Foods Inc.
Sunora was founded by Steve Bank in 1990. Over its twenty-three year history of operations the company has grown from a small start-up supplying a limited number of Canola oil products to the Canadian and United States markets to a consistently profitable trader in the global food oil industry.
Although Sunora's primary trading product is Canola oil, it also trades a variety of other food oil products, including corn oil, soybean oil, olive oil and specialty oils (including blends of Canola with extra virgin olive oil and organic oils) under the "Sunora" and "Sunera" brands and numerous private labels, to customers in thirty different countries across the globe.
Sunora buys food oils in large commercial quantities from Seed Crushers and resells the food oils either in bulk to food oil processors or in smaller quantities that are repackaged for customers in the retail and food services industries around the world.
