Who We Are
WHO WE ARE
Our principles of trust, dedication and transparency are grounded by over 115 years in the food production business by our founding shareholders of Purely Canada Foods™.
TRUSTED: by our customers, both local producers and our grain and food ingredient buyers.
DEDICATED: to providing high quality product that exceeds our customers and industry expectations.
TRANSPARENT: in the food value chain from Western Canadian lands to the tables of the world.
Purely Canada Foods is a joint venture between PureWest Commodities Inc in Lajord SK, and Battle River Railway NGC Inc, a producer cooperative based in Forestburg, AB. The joint venture includes physical assets such as railway infrastructure, large grain storage terminals, private railcar fleet, and strategic farm acres that allows Purely Canada Foods to provide reliability and agility to ensure the best possible service in the grain supply chain.
Our goals at Purely Canada Foods:
- To provide quality products to our international customers. Purely Canada Foods has cultivated long standing relationships with our customers in niche and boutique markets by providing sustainably grown, identity preserved commodities for quality assurance.
- Early producer engagement and pre-planned acres, to meet customer’s needs and ensure we are ahead of the trends in world food consumption. As many of the producers are shareholders in the railway and owners of the loading facilities, our producers are invested in every level, from growing to shipping.
- Providing better selling experiences for our grain producers. We aim to provide flexible delivery options at our facilities and quicker payment than the old producer car model. We also offer a free Harvest Sample Program, allowing our producers to know the quality of their harvested grain, to manage marketing options and grain deliveries.
