    Full interview



    Burcon is a company that has invested significant time and money in the development of plant proteins in the past and is now building manufacturing facilities in Winnipeg as part of a joint venture to in the future make the patented ingredients available to the food industry as meat substitutes. Nestle is one of the world's largest suppliers of convenience foods and other food products, which will be supplemented with Burcon products in the future.

    During the Corona Pandemic, the meat processing industry worldwide experienced problems because many employees became infected with Covid-19 due to working conditions. Temporary plant shutdowns occurred at numerous sites. As a result, awareness is changing and more and more consumers prefer the plant-based replacement of meat. As a result, Canada's Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has made financial commitments to the Burcon/Merit Functional Foods joint venture. Burcon's market value is currently CAD 172.6 million.

    Around three years ago, a new team took over the management of Saturn Oil & Gas and developed the company into a profitable oil producer. In 2019 the first annual profit in the history of the company was achieved and the first quarter of 2020 was also profitable. The special strength of the company is its flexibility and adaptability to the general conditions. For example, even before the Corona Pandemic and the associated price fluctuations, the company has concluded a hedging transaction at over CAD 65.00. This enabled the management to compensate for the decline in oil prices.

For this reason, Jim Payne, CEO of the cleantech company dynaCERT, was also appointed to the Board of Directors. Payne is an expert in the reduction of pollutant emissions. Finally, it should be mentioned that Canada protects human rights and the environment - those who appreciate these values should prefer oil from the North of America. The market value of Saturn Oil & Gas is CAD 24.6 million.
