Grain Millers Canada is investing to add 80,000 tonnes of oat product production capacity at its mill in Yorkton, Saskatchewan.
Grain Millers Canada announced the initiation of the second phase of a project to add 80,000 tonnes of oat product production capacity at its mill in Yorkton, Saskatchewan. The project, totaling 100 million dollars when completed, reinforces the company’s leadership in the sourcing, milling, and delivery of safe and identity-preserved ingredients to customers in the food and beverage industries. The company expects the new milling capacity to become operational in late 2018.
Terry Tyson, Director of Grain Procurement for GMCC said “Typically oats supplies for the Yorkton mill have come from farms within 100 kilometers, and that is likely to continue, even with the expansion. And more oats will be required. When complete, expected to be in late 2018, the expansion will basically double the plant’s capacity north of the city from its existing 80,000 tonnes annually.”
