Sask Pulse crop processor outlines major expansion

A Saskatchewan pulse processor has announced a significant expansion.

Belle Pulses of Duck Lake and Bellevue is adding shifts to increase production capacity to nearly 100 thousand tons a year.

Belle Pulses is owned by Eat Well Investment Group and chief investment officer Mark Coles says the 10 percent increase in production is due to strong world demand, partly due to the war in Ukraine.

The company will also expand its plant in Montana.

Coles says the expansion could also see development of another processing plant in Saskatchewan.

Belle Pulses is based in Duck Lake and Bellevue, about 325 kilometers northwest of Regina.

The company supplies product to over 35 countries.
