Cargill is selling 13 Ontario grain and crop inputs retail assets to La Coop fédérée, the largest agri-food enterprise in Quebec.
The sale includes Cargill’s 50 per cent share of South West Ag Partners, but does not include the Cargill export terminal in Sarnia, or the AgResource crop inputs wholesale business.
Terms of the pending sale were not disclosed. Facilities included in the sale are all in Western Ontario.
Prior to the sale, La Coop fédérée already owned, in Ontario, 4 crop input terminals, 16 locally-owned joint-venture retailers and a grain-trading group.
