ADM, a global agricultural origination and processing and supply chain management firm, has announced the acquisition of Prairie Pulse Inc., owners of a pulse crop cleaning, milling, and packaging facility in Vanscoy, SK.

“Everything at ADM starts with the farmer,” said ADM commercial manager Aaron Brown. “Their success is our success, and we’re excited to strengthen our relationships with Canadian pulse growers through the acquisition of Prairie Pulse.

“We’ll be reaching out to producers about ADM’s unique array of tools and resources to help them manage and grow their businesses — including our access to global markets, our work to create value for sustainable farming practices, and our technology partnerships.”

Prairie Pulse’s operations in Vanscoy — which include origination, 12,000 MT of bulk storage, cleaning, milling, sorting, sizing, and bagging — will double ADM’s pulse footprint in the region. The pulse dehulling and splitting facility transforms lentils, chickpeas, and peas into shelf- and food-ready products for domestic and international consumption.

“This is an exciting opportunity for Prairie Pulse, our staff, and customers,” said Allan Wagner, ADM commercial manager and former Prairie Pulse president and CEO. “ADM is a global leader in agribusiness, transportation and processing, as well as the fast-growing alternative protein sector that our products serve.”

ADM’s current services and operations in Saskatchewan include pulse origination and cleaning in North Battleford, canola crushing in Lloydminster, oilseed sourcing in Watson, and fertilizer sales and distribution in Lajord and Yorkton.
