Our two pulse-dedicated facilities are located on the Canadian prairies. At Portage la Prairie, Manitoba we utilize proprietary milling methods to create 'Best' gluten-free tested pulse flours, pea hull fibers, pet food, and nutraceutical markets. At Rowatt, Saskatchewan we source, clean and bag whole peas, lentils and chickpeas, and de-hull, split and polish peas, for sale throughout the world.
'Best' products are non-GM and include naturally polished green and yellow split peas, whole peas, chickpeas, lentils, pulse flours and grits (pea, chickpea, lentil, and bean), pea hull fibers, and extruded pulse inclusions.
