Rokiškis Oil Extraction and Refinery Plant is a reliable producer of premium quality crude rapeseed oil that is free of GMOs (genetically modified organisms). Optimization of the production process and installation of cutting edge technology helped us to increase the yield. Presently, Rokiškis Oil Extraction and Refinery Plant produces 50,000 tons of crude rapeseed oil per year. Around 160 tons of seeds are pressed per day. The company can store approx. 15 thousand tons of rapeseed and accept around 1,000 tons of rapeseed per day from the suppliers.
Our crude rapeseed oil is used to produce edible oil, animal feed and biodiesel. Crude oil quality parameters: acid value < 3.5 mgKOH/g; phosphorus < 300 ppm; moisture content < 0.25%; solids < 0.1%. TRokiškis Oil Extraction and Refinery Plant sells the majority of its crude oil (85 to 90%) to the companies making biodiesel. For this purpose, we produce two types of oil for biodiesel: crude oil and degummed oil.
We are a reliable business partner whose high-quality products have been recognized both in Lithuania and abroad. Our oil is extracted only from the finest GMO-free rapeseed grown in Lithuania. Pursuant to Commission Regulation (EU) No. 696/2014, farmers are allowed to cultivate only those species of rape that contain no more than 5% of erucic acid. Directive (EU) 2015/412 of the European Parliament and of the Council regarding the possibility for the Member States to restrict or prohibit the cultivation of genetically modified organisms (GMOs) in their territory has been in force as of April 2, 2015. No GMOs are grown in Lithuania and thus the Lithuanian farmers supply Rokiškis Oil Extraction and Refinery Plant with natural raw materials. Almost half of our products are exported and the other half is sold in Lithuania.
