Saskatchewan announces Louis Dreyfus Company pea protein plant

REGINA—The Government of Saskatchewan has announced a new Louis Dreyfus Company (LDC) pea protein isolate production plant is slated to be built in Yorkton, Sask.

The plant will be built at LDC’s current Yorkton facility and has an expected completion date at the end of 2025 with construction expected to begin late this year.

The new facility will expand and accelerate LDC’s existing pea protein isolate and non-GMO soy isolate offerings, a release said.

Saskatchewan’s pulse production averages approximately four million tonnes annually, accounting for approximately 90 per cent of Canadian lentil exports and roughly 80 per cent of Canada’s pea exports, the release said, adding “crop rotations using nitrogen-fixing pulses contribute to making Saskatchewan’s carbon footprint for crop production significantly lower than the global weighted average among comparable jurisdictions.”
