The expansion increases access to global markets through the creation of a fully integrated supply chain, GrainsConnect Canada. GrainsConnect Canada is a strategic joint venture between GrainCorp and Zen-Noh Grain Corporation, a subsidiary of major Japanese Agricultural cooperative Zen-Noh. GrainsConnect, and its high-capacity delivery points, is connecting Canadian growers with customers around the world.
GrainsConnect Canada is currently shipping grain from two terminals in Maymont and Reford, Saskatchewan. Terminals in Vegreville and Huxley, Alberta will open in 2019. The supply chain combines GrainCorp’s grain origination operations with existing global demand from both joint venture partners, and complements GrainCorp’s established operations in Canada including Canada Malting Company.
GrainCorp’s existing Canadian office is managing the origination process, with new delivery points strategically positioned to best service the grain growing regions of Alberta and Saskatchewan. GrainCorp’s relationships and experience in the Canadian market will ensure a seamless experience for growers from grain sale to delivery.
