A canola researcher was one of 12 Manitobans to receive the Order of Manitoba during a ceremony held Thursday at the Manitoba Legislative Building.
Dr. Michael Eskin is a professor in the Department of Food and Human Nutritional Sciences at the University of Manitoba.
He's a global leader in canola research and one of the world’s leading food science writers.
Dr. Eskin earned the Order of Canada in 2016 for his work on the physicochemical and functional properties of canola oil that is key to the success of the Canadian canola oil industry.
His work helped make canola oil the third-largest major oilseed crop in the world.
The Order of Manitoba was established in 1999 to honour Manitobans who have demonstrated excellence and achievement, thereby enriching the social, cultural or economic well-being of the province and its residents.Click here to see more...
