Viterra Buys U.S. Legume Processor

Viterra Inc, Canada’s biggest grain handler, said June 20 that a subsidiary has bought Premier Pulses International Inc, a U.S. processor and seller of legume crops.

The deal includes a pea and lentil processing and merchandising facility in Minot, North Dakota, and a marketing office in Lewiston, Idaho.

Premier Pulses is located in the main pea-and lentil-growing regions of the northern United States and will help fill demand for legume crops in the Middle East and Asia, Viterra Senior Vice- President Bob Miller said in a statement.

Viterra, based in Regina, Saskatchewan, has said the United States is one of its key target areas for acquisitions.

Terms of the deal were not announced.
