Through its acquisition of Legumex Walker Inc.’s (LWI) special crops business, Scoular has become one of Canada’s largest processors of special crops (sunflower seed, flax, and canary seed) and pulses (lentils, peas, beans, and chickpeas). Building on the LWI foundation, Scoular’s special crops business will source, process, market, and distribute special crops and associated food products to meet global market needs. Learn more »
The special crops business is a strategic extension of Scoular’s growing grain, feed and food ingredient business. Acquiring the assets and people of LWI’s Special Crops Division expands the company’s product offering and expertise as well as its geographic footprint.
Through the acquisition, Scoular is adding more than 300 employees to its ranks, including a highly qualified management team, as well as 14 processing facilities strategically located in key growing regions in the Canadian Prairie Provinces, the northern U.S., and China. Scoular will bring additional resources to the business in support of its commitment to grow.
