The oil dripped out of the giant vat and, under the watchful gaze of Allan Roberts, into a clear bottle, starting a production line on the Wangarang factory floor which runs like clockwork.
Mr Roberts passed it on to Bonny Moon, who cleans the bottle of any excess oil before passing it to Justin Omrod, who labels it before Jeremy Reed gives it the all-clear and boxes it.
On Friday, the quartet were the first to begin bottling the first load of canola oil from Newcastle-based Cargill, and will keep at it over the coming few weeks.
The new order - which involves putting the oil into smaller containers as a sample for Cargill's marketing team - was a hard one for the company to outsource, but Cargill senior accounts manager Karen Brownlee said Wangarang was a perfect fit.
"It was a great opportunity, what we were doing is producing small sample bottles for us to take to canola oil to use in marketing work we're doing," she said.
"Finding someone to produce a small quantity of it wasn't easy but these guys can do it for us.
"It's great to be able to do with Wangarang because the work they do is really amazing, to provide jobs and work for people with disabilities across the region."
She said having it produced in a regional area, not far from area like Manildra which produce canola oil, was another bonus.
Wangarang operations manager Keiran Taylor said partnering with Cargill was "terrific".
"It's great when bigger companies like Cargill come to us and need a quick solution over a very short scale but because of the nature of our operation we have the flexibility to be able to do that," he said.
"It's terrific to be able to work with them on such a good project."
He said it was similar to a lot of the work done at Wangarang, and the organisation's flexibility allowed them to pick up the order at the drop of a hat and turn it around in a few weeks.
"We do a lot of wine, labelling, de-labelling, canter seals, and we can normally turn something like this around pretty quickly," he said.
Mr Taylor also said it was nice to pick up the recognition from outside the region and expand Wangarang's reach.
"We have a couple of customers from outside of here but they're probably the exception rather than the rule," he said.
"We're a local business and value our local customers but it's nice to be able to get the out of towners."
