Cargill is investing in improvements to western Canadian crop inputs facilities.

(WINNIPEG, MB) November 20, 2017 – Cargill is investing more than $11 million over the next year to expand and improve its crop inputs facilities, increasing product selection and efficiency at 11 crop inputs facilities across western Canada, with more projects to come.

“We’d like our customers to feel confident that they can rely on Cargill to efficiently deliver the products they need, along with the knowledgeable help they’ve come to rely on us for,” said Glenn Houser, North American crop inputs director. “Making these improvements shows Cargill’s commitment to our crop inputs customers, and helps us bring new, innovative products to western Canadian farmers.”

Chief among those new offerings is a brand new crop inputs facility at Equity, AB. Cargill is also adding soybean seed bulk handling and treating capabilities at Oakner, Manitoba, and expanding bulk treating facilities at Elva and Dauphin, MB, and Balcarres and Davidson in eastern and central Saskatchewan. The new offerings will match Cargill’s soybean handling abilities and experience on the global market with inputs in this new soybean territory, creating an end-to-end experience for our customers. 

Lethbridge, AB is increasing its fertilizer storage, allowing for more efficient unloading and a wider range of fertilizer products for local farmers.

Crop inputs sites at Viking, AB, and Raymore and Unity, SK will soon operate out of new warehouses, improving storage and making product pickup a more efficient and pleasant experience.
