Cargill expanding in Canada
by Eric Schroeder
WINNIPEG, MAN. — Cargill said it will begin expansion next month at its Morris, Man., farm service center. The expansion will increase grain storage by adding an additional 20,000 tonnes for a total of 30,000 tonnes. Rail car handling will increase from the current 54 cars to 100. “Improved access to rail and increased storage capabilities remains a top priority,” said Jeff Vassart, president of Cargill Ltd. “We recognize the need for more storage and additional car spots for the entire value chain to maximize opportunity. By investing in our Morris location, we have an opportunity to efficiently manage how our grain will move and improve access to rail shipment.” Construction is expected to be completed for the 2015 harvest.
