WINNIPEG, MANITOBA, CANADA — Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada Minister Gerry Ritz announced on Jan. 21 an investment of more than C$1.5 million to Pulse Canada to lead a multi-sector collaboration project of the pulse, oilseeds and grains industries to improve supply chain efficiency and reliability.

This investment, made through the AgriMarketing Program, will help build a more efficient, consistent, and reliable agricultural supply chain system for Canada’s grain farmers, Ritz said. This will have a positive impact on the entire logistical value chain, reducing back-up at ports and railways and opening up new domestic and international markets.

“Our government continues to work with all parts of the grain supply chain to strengthen our logistics system so that farmers can get their products to market in a timely manner,” Ritz said. 
“This project will help ensure the industry has the right tools and processes in place to achieve measurable improvements in supply chain performance, leading to greater profitability.”

This project is a collaborative effort and will receive support from many partners, including the Grain Growers of Canada (GCG), the Canadian Canola Growers Association (CCGA), the Western Grain Elevators Association (WGEA) and the Inland Terminals Association of Canada (ITAC).
