Products of Distinct Focus

Birch Timber & Wood Products

Canada has 347 million hectares (ha) of forest. This represents nearly 9% of the world’s forests.   In Canada, the main hardwood species are birch, maple and oak. Hardwood lumber and plywood are manufactured in Ontario and Québec.   

General Uses: Plywood, boxes, crates, turned objects, interior trim, and other small specialty wood items. Comments: Birch is one of the most widely used woods for veneer and plywood worldwide. Besides regular sheets of plywood, Birch veneer is also used for doors, furniture, and paneling.   

To meet the demand, we have a growing database and are continuing to develop trade relationships with top partner countries (USA, China, Japan, Korea Rep., UK), to which Canada exports wood and wood products.

Lentil Crops

Canada is ranked number 1 of the top ten countries producing lentils

6 Common Types of Lentils: 

  • Yellow 
  • Red
  • Green 
  • Brown
  • Black (Beluga)
  • French (du Puy)-small and dark green

Lentil is adapted to cool growing conditions, and the young plants are tolerant of spring frosts. This allows for early spring planting dates. Lentil should be seeded in late April to early May. Later seeding dates produce shorter plants and late maturing pods which increase harvest losses.

Special crops (pulses) are in high demand both domestically and globally, Charpstin being a Canadian Corporation has the resources to and is taking the intuitive to facilitate the supply of this demand.

Mustard Seeds

Canada is ranked 3rd of the top ten countries producing mustard seeds.   Mustard seeds are the small round seeds of various mustard plants. 

Mustard seeds generally take three to ten days to germinate if placed under the proper conditions, which include a cold atmosphere and relatively moist soil. Mature mustard plants grow into shrubs.   

Three mustard types, derived from two different species, are grown in Saskatchewan, Canada.   

  • Yellow Mustard (Sinapis alba) ... 
  • Brown Mustard (Brassica juncea) ... 
  • Oriental Mustard (Brassica juncea)   

Yellow mustard has a yellow seed coat and is primarily grown for the North American condiment industry, where it is used to produce traditional yellow mustard, mayonnaise and certain salad dressings. The seed of yellow mustard also contains a water-binding mucilage that has been used as a binding agent and protein extender in prepared meats.   

Brown mustard has a reddish brown to dark brown seed coat while oriental mustard seeds are primarily yellow to dark yellow. Both create products that are spicier than yellow mustard condiments.   

Brown mustard is primarily exported to Europe where it is used to produce condiments and specialty mustards like Dijon mustard.    Oriental mustard is primarily grown for export to Asian countries where it is used to produce condiments. 

Oriental mustard oil is used as a spicy cooking oil in some Asian countries, but is not consumed as an oil in North America.   

Charpstin will only promote products that are safe, promote a healthy diet/lifestyle and are in demand in both the domestic and foreign markets.
