An agricultural company is planting its roots in the Friendly City.
Agrocorp Processing announced it is relocating its headquarters from Vancouver to Moose Jaw.
Currently, the company has a high-speed loading and cleaning pulse facility in Moose Jaw, which it opened in 2013.
The move – planned for next year – is expected to add 20 new jobs to the company, as it expands over the next three years in Moose Jaw.
“Attracting head offices of companies to our province has been a priority of our government,” Premier Brad Wall said in a news release.
“I first met Agrocorp chairman and managing director Vijay Iyengar during an Asian trade mission and certainly encouraged Agrocorp to invest in Saskatchewan. So I welcome this decision and thank Agrocorp for creating new jobs and investment in Saskatchewan.”
Singapore-based Agrocorp is a global supplier and marketer of food and agricultural products. The government says the company has a long history of purchasing Canadian grains, pulses, oilseeds and specialty crops.
“I have seen firsthand the efforts Saskatchewan makes to further opportunities for Canadian crops around the world and the important role crops play globally,” said Colin Topham, managing director of Agrocorp Processing.
“Given Saskatchewan’s productive land base and thriving community, Agrocorp is proud to be moving headquarters to this growing province.”
Agrocorp Processing was founded in 2009 and now has four processing plants and 50 employees across Canada.
