We began our investigation with an inquiry into each company's website. This avenue of inquiry yielded information on available products and the advertised benefits of camelina oil. However, we were unable to constrain any of the companies' regions of distribution. Each company has an associated e-commerce platform that ships internationally. We can only surmise that each company's region of distribution is global.
We were also unable to locate any information concerning Xasinuote's messaging, available products, or region of distribution. While we made a thorough search of the company's corporate site, we were only able to uncover information on the benefits of camelina oil. The company's website does not provide any information on camelina oil products offered by Xasinuote. Expanding our search to e-commerce platforms (e.g., Amazon and Shopify) yielded no information on Xasinuote's products. Our next step was to make inquiries into media and market intelligence sources (e.g., Technavio and Industrynewsblog.com). This avenue did yield results in the form of reports that list Xasinuote as a key player in the camelina oil market. Unfortunately, any detailed information about the company is behind the paywalled sections of the reports. We can only conclude that any relevant data concerning Xasinuote's involvement in the sale or supply of camelina oil are not publicly available.
