Could Regina be known as the mustard capital of Canada?
Those at Regina Exhibition Association Limited (REAL) certainly think so, and they may have a strong argument.
Roughly 80 per cent of Canada’s mustard seed is grown in Saskatchewan according to REAL. The province also supplies nearly 29 per cent of the world’s mustard seed.
“Saskatchewan is the largest grower of mustard and the biggest exporter of mustard in Canada,” said Kirk Westgard, vice-president of agriculture for REAL.
“A lot of it is grown right here around Regina. You don’t have to go very far to see agriculture being produced and made in connection to a farmer.”
