The Prairie Grain Portal

Connecting Canadian Agricultural with the World

OUR CORE MISSION:

DIRECT SALES BETWEEN AG PRODUCERS AND END-BUYERS

Our mission is plain and simple: to facilitate trade by opening direct-sales channels to overseas export markets and supporting the fulfillment of those sales through containerized delivery -- direct from farm gate to end buyer

The motivation behind our mission is a firm belief that despite all the advancements and export growth the Prairies have achieved, our grain economy is not living up to its full potential. Those who suffer most are producers, with their margins being squeezed and their diversification prospects being thwarted

The Prairie Grain Portal is designed to facilitate direct connections between end-buyers overseas and Canadian agricultural producers, freeing them from the 'bulk-trap' in which they are caught

FEATURED OPPORTUNITIES

Canadian Malting
Barley

We produce some of the best malting barley in the world, with cutting-edge testing, handling, and service ecosystems in support

Craft-brewing is exploding in Asia-Pacific and Canada is an ideal procurement destination

Here we introduce the world to some of the things that make Canadian producers so special

Craft Breweries: Asia-Pacific

Asia-Pacific's craft-beer demand is growing faster than any other region, and it is starting almost from scratch

As this artform spreads, more maltsters and brewers will be looking for higher quality malt and malting barley, and Canadian producers should be supplying them

We should stop selling our malting barley as feed for fractions of its value, and start specializing to satisfy this demand for high quality beer in the Asia-Pacific region

TRADE FACILITATION

Given the current bulk-orientation of grain-trades, it may be difficult to relate to how an Internet-portal could lead to grain-sales, but the trade-forum we provide can go a long way to facilitate direct-sales-channels.

We not only connect buyers and sellers but also provide trade-support -- market intelligence and insights to identify sales-opportunities, as well as risk assessment and mitigation to protect producer-interests.

LOGISTICS SOLUTIONS

A major deterrent to high-value crop-exports is the inadequacy of containerization channels, which we already observe in lentil-trades -- even pulling empty containers inland remains a perennial logistics-bottleneck. 

We have a strategy to improve inland container supply to offer fully integrated, one-stop logistics solutions, from farm-gate to final-delivery -- direct shipments with crop identity and integrity maintained at every step.

Researching and Writing

GLOBAL MARKET TRENDS

We follow global trade-volumes and crop-prices like most analysts, but our market-research efforts primarily focus on fundamental demand-drivers -- consumption and production trends in both food and feed supply-chains.

While our core focus remains on high-value export prospects (new crop varieties or grades) we pay just as much attention to the risks our bulk-crop exports face on the global stage, particularly from emerging regions.

PRAIRIE AGRICULTURE

Globally, the Prairies are known for our quality staple-crop exports, but we must bring more attention to our diversification potential -- not just new crop varieties, but also specialty-grades of our staple-crops.

To this end, an integral part of our export-mandate is promoting the virtues of the Prairies to the best of our abilities, as the world's most advanced region in agronomy, technology, regulations, and sustainability.

ABOUT US

We have a grand vision for the future of agricultural trades -- one where producers can regain control from major grain companies that dominate the Prairie grain-markets.

Our first step is to serve as an information and consultation portal dedicated to serving producer interests -- to identify new sales-opportunities and attract end-buyers.

As we grow, we hope to develop into an active trade-portal that connects producers directly with global crop markets, where they will find much higher yields by being able to safely diversify and specialize their crops from year to year.  We will be there to facilitate the execution of these trades with our containerized logistics solutions.

We are soliciting support and engagement from producers, their associations, and other grain industry stake-holders -- we want to turn our portal into a collaborative initiative.
