COMPANIES IN BRIEFThis article was originally published in The Public Ledger
CARGILL has signed a five-year animal feed proteins deal with Canada’s Alliance Grain Traders. The deal makes Cargill the exclusive seller of the company’s animal feed proteins in North America. Animal feed proteins are not a core product for Alliance, which exports and processes pulse crops such as lentils and peas, making it a logical area for a marketing arrangement with Cargill. Regina, Saskatchewan-based Alliance is planning to start processing pulse crops into human food ingredients and animal feed products at a new plant in Minot, North Dakota, this year.
