Agrocorp has operated a $20 million, high-speed loading and cleaning pulse facility in Moose Jaw since 2013. As part of the move, the company said it expects to add 20 new jobs as the company expands over the next three years in Moose Jaw.
Earlier this year, Agrocorp entered a purchase agreement with Veikle Grain Ltd. to buy the latter’s grain terminal in Cut Knife, Saskatchewan. Located in northern Saskatchewan on a main CP Rail line, the Cut Knife plant handles pulses, grains and oilseeds.
Singapore-based Agrocorp has a long history of purchasing Canadian grains, pulses, oilseeds and specialty crops. In the last year Agrocorp said its bulk vessel and container divisions combined for a total export of 1.75 million tonnes of Canadian pulses, grains and oilseeds. With 17 global offices, one of Agrocorp’s greatest strengths is an established presence in Canada’s top emerging export markets, the company said.
