The Kindersley Ingredient Processing Terminal located in Western Saskatchewan, is capable of processing and shipping up to 100,000 metric tonnes of value-added grains and protein ingredients.
David Nobbs, Purely Canada’s Senior Pulse Manager comments, “After 20 years of involvement in the special crop business in west central Saskatchewan, I am pleased that Purely Canada has acquired the Kindersley facility. It will be a privilege to work closely once again with the producers of peas, lentils, canary seed, and mustard in this region. Our Purely Canada Kindersley team has direct knowledge and understanding of the facility, its capabilities and the producer needs within this region. The west central Saskatchewan region has long been my home and the crops produced are the highest quality and showcase quality with our buyers around the world”.

Tyler West, Co-Founder and CEO of Purely Canada, expresses “We understand that Nothing is Above Nature. Our five generations of farmers that have farmed the same lands, have taught us that our relationship with nature defines how we live and what we eat. Our food starts with a seed and is whole by nature’s design. We know every step of its journey from our fields to people’s plates. We know the impact on the environment; we know who has touched it, we know its whole story. And we tell it proudly”.
