Cereals Canada is welcoming three new members.
G3 Canada, the grain company formed after Bunge and SALIC acquired a majority stake in the former Canadian Wheat Board in 2015, has signed up to join the national cereal crop value chain organization.
“Collaboration is a core value held by G3, and we certainly appreciate the important role that Cereals Canada plays in bringing together participants from across our value chain to focus on issues that impact us all,” said G3 senior vice-president Ward Weisensel, in a news release.
As of July 1, Winter Cereals Manitoba and the Saskatchewan Winter Cereals Development Commission will also become members.
“Winter Cereals is looking forward to working alongside other cereal producer groups and members of the cereals value chain to help promote growth in the value of winter cereals,” noted Jake Davidson, who serves as the executive director for both grower organizations.
Cereals Canada brings together most of the major stakeholders in the Canadian cereal crop sector, with a board of directors representing farmers, grain handling/processing companies, and crop development/seed companies.
