Safe and Profitable Oil Production Fact Sheets

Edible oils, which are oils used for salad dressing, deep fat frying or pan frying cooking methods, are often produced by large-scale processors. But Penn State University and the University of Vermont have been working together to create easily accessible information on edible oil production for small-scale processors. The following fact sheets provide information on oilseed pressing, filtering, cleaning and storage, processing, and oil seed regulations, specifically for small-scale processors.
