A Focus on Family - Pristine Gourmet and the Children’s Aid Foundation
The Children’s Aid Foundation (CAF) is pleased to announce an exciting new partnership with Pristine Gourmet, a family-owned farming business based in Ontario. Starting in January 2008, 1% of retail sales of Pristine Gourmet’s premium canola oils, soybean oils and vinaigrettes will benefit the CAF and help to serve the thousands of abused, neglected and high-risk children in Canada.
Jason Persall, a grain farmer in Waterford, Ontario, discovered a few years ago that when it’s cold pressed without chemicals or solvents, canola seed produces a vibrant and flavour-packed oil—one that’s brilliant for salads or dipping
Oil’s well! - The Persalls Eye the Future with Optimism
What is Canada’s Maple Leaf doing beside the words “cold-pressed” and “extra virgin?” Terms we associate with olive oil assure us that flavour, aroma and nutritional benefits are intact. And now they are front and centre on the mock-up of a new label for Pristine Oils. As soy oil trickles from an auger-like press into a storage tank at the Persall Naturals processing facility in rural Waterford, Jason Persall explains.
Pristine Oils. The Natural Alternative - Toronto Star
We usually think of olive oil when we hear the phrase "cold- pressed." A Waterford, Ont., farm family wants us to think of their canola and soybean oils, too. You'll be surprised at the clear, full flavours. Pristine Oils, made by Persall Naturals Ltd., are alternatives to not only olive oil, but those mass-produced, refined vegetable oils used slapdash in the kitchen
