WHAT WE OFFER PRODUCERS

The Arctic Gateway links producers across the Prairies to the world food marketplace.

Equidistant from the Port of Thunder Bay and the grain-producing heartland of Western Canada, the Arctic Gateway features key logistical advantages for moving grain to the world marketplace. With expertise in both grain and rail operations as well as marketing experience for producers selling their grain to international markets, AGG and its partners offer logistics and port handling services to grain companies across Canada.

AGT Foods, one of the world’s leading exporters of pulses, grains, specialty crops and food ingredients, is a founding partner in the Arctic Gateway Group, providing seed, cleaning, processing, packaging and marketing services for agricultural commodities.

The grain terminal of the Port of Churchill features four rail car receiving tracks with an unloading capacity of 900 tonnes per hour. Its cleaning facility can clean wheat and durum at a rate of 600 tonnes per hour and canola at 250 tonnes per hour, providing options for bulk grain at different levels of finish.

The Arctic Gateway is also uniquely positioned to help fulfill the high demand for bulk commodities such as granular urea and phosphate in the Prairies, receiving loads of these commodities through the Port of Churchill and moving them via rail to their end destinations in Manitoba, Saskatchewan and Alberta.
