ADM acquired Prairie Pulse Inc., a pulse crop cleaning, milling and packaging business in Vanscoy, Saskatchewan, Canada. Prairie Pulse’s operations – which include origination, 12,000 MT of bulk storage, cleaning, milling, sorting, sizing and bagging – will double ADM’s pulse footprint in the region. The pulse dehulling and splitting facility transforms lentils, chickpeas and peas into shelf- and food-ready products for domestic and international consumption.
ADM’s current services and operations in Saskatchewan include pulse origination and cleaning in North Battleford, canola crushing in Lloydminster, oilseed sourcing in Watson, and fertilizer sales and distribution in Lajord and Yorkton.
“Everything at ADM starts with the farmer,” said ADM commercial manager Aaron Brown. “Their success is our success, and we’re excited to strengthen our relationships with Canadian pulse growers through the acquisition of Prairie Pulse. We’ll be reaching out to producers about ADM’s unique array of tools and resources to help them manage and grow their businesses – including our access to global markets, our work to create value for sustainable farming practices, and our technology partnerships.”
