In the past two decades, the province of Saskatchewan has built its pulse sector into the biggest in the world. It is the largest exporter of lentils and dried peas and a significant producer of chick peas. Saskatchewan is recognized worldwide for the quality of its crops. In recent years agri-value companies have stepped in to make significant investments into further processing these crops.
AGT Food and Ingredients has been there from the beginning, working with producers and crop development scientists to perfect the types of pulses best suited for processing and exporting. Growing with the province’s pulse sector since it started in 2003, the Regina-based company now has 20 of its international network of 48 manufacturing facilities located in Saskatchewan.
