Canadian Wheat Board (CWB) blocked the attempts of the P rairie Pasta Producers
Late last week, the Canadian Wheat Board (CWB) blocked the attempts of the P rairie Pasta Producers (PPP) to establish a successful value-added venture for their durum wheat. PPP had been in discussions with Dakota Growers Pasta Company (DGPC) over the last several years to work together to add value to Canadian durum by processing it into pasta for Canadian and American consumers. By acquiring shares into DGPC, this would give the PPP member the right to deliver one bushel of durum per year to DGPC. Earlier this month, after PPP concluded a share offering with DGPC, the CWB informed PPP that they do not qualify as a new-generation co-op under the CWB’s New Generation Co-op (NGC) policy rules because the processing would take place outside of Canada. This effectively killed the share offering. The transaction had been conducted with full knowledge of the CWB and was done according to the CWB’s NGC policy, but this was the first time that PPP had been informed by the CWB that they were breaching the CWB’s NGC policy. This is not the first time the CWB has hampered the PPP goals of creating a valued-added industry for durum wheat. PPP is a new-generation co-op of Saskatchewan farmers that who originally got together to build a pasta plant in Saskatchewan. The CWB’s buy-back policy made the original venture too costly and cumbersome.
