Clean, consistent, quality cereals that are responsibly farmed in Canada.
Canada Western Red Spring (CWRS) is our most widely grown wheat class that is known for having high protein with well balanced gluten strength. We continue to add new varieties to the Canada Prairie Spring Red (CPSR) class that have excellent flour yields. Canada Western Red Winter (CWRW) is another wheat class that offers very good quality as a medium protein wheat.
OUR 2020 WHEAT CROP
A near ideal growing season produced a great high-quality crop.
Canada Western Amber Durum (CWAD) is recognized for its high protein content, good gluten quality and high semolina yield. The high quality and large production of Canada Western Amber Durum (CWAD) makes Canada the leading exporter of durum wheat in the world. Products made from semolina milled from CWAD—like high-quality pasta, couscous and bread—are characterized by a bright yellow appearance that’s desired by consumers.
As the largest exporter of high-quality oats in the world, Canada produces about 3 million tonnes every year. Canadian oats supply three primary markets: milling oats for human consumption; performance or pony oats, largely for high-end race or competitive horses; and high-yielding feed oat varieties.
While the largest use of barley is for animal feed, it is also increasingly being used for human consumption—as malt for beer and in soup, cereal and snack products. Nearly 23,000 farmers produce roughly eight million tonnes yearly; making Canada the fourth largest barley producer and the second largest malt exporter in the world.
Canada is setting the standard for modern farming practices
Clean, consistent and quality
We grow and harvest better due to modern farming practices, Canada’s natural advantage and regulation from the Canadian Grain Commission (CGC) which sets high standards for clean, consistent quality.
Across the country, the farming industry continues to move forward and make advancements in farming practices and crop production. Along with regulatory agencies, Cereals Canada facilitates priority-setting for Canadian research, which centers around customers and their needs.
Current management practices provide a better and healthier farming environment than previous generations. Modern protocols like conservation tillage and capturing or sequestration of carbon dioxide from the atmosphere to slow or reverse atmospheric CO2 pollution to mitigate and reverse global warming keeps sustainability at the forefront of farming.
I spoke with breeders and I met farmers, and asked them about quality. Frankly, I understood that for the farmer, the breeder, for all of the active persons active on Canadian durum grain, quality is not just a sentence, it's a reality”
