Agriculture and Agri-Value

Located in the heart of the Canadian Prairies, Saskatchewan is home to more than 40 per cent of Canada's cultivated farmland – some of the most productive land in the world.

Saskatchewan's diverse agriculture and agri-food sector has an international reputation for consistently supplying high-quality food and ingredients. Saskatchewan is the largest exporter of agri-food products in Canada.

With a vast, productive land base and a collaborative approach to crop development research, Saskatchewan is playing an increasingly important role as a major food supplier to the world's rapidly growing population.

Agriculture

Saskatchewan has built its pulse sector to be the largest in the world. The province is the world's largest exporter of peas, lentils, durum wheat, mustard seed, canola, flaxseed and oats. Saskatchewan is recognized worldwide for the quality of its crops, and the province is also the second largest cattle-producing province in Canada.

World Export Market 2020-AG

In 2020, Saskatchewan exported $16.9 billion in agri-food products.

Agri-Value

Saskatchewan is feeding the world – our quality inputs plus agricultural technical expertise equal a growing agri-value industry. Since 2004, Saskatchewan's annual revenue from value-added agriculture has more than doubled from $2.3 billion to $5.6 billion.

More than 300 food processing companies in Saskatchewan produce a wide range of cereal, meat, dairy and bakery products, as well as food ingredients.

The Saskatchewan Food Industry Development Centre offers significant expertise in snack extrusion and meat analog development. The centre provides a range of services and works closely with the local and global companies to develop and process products from concept to commercialization.

Saskatchewan is also home to the headquarters of Protein Industries Canada, a new pan-prairie 'supercluster' designed to bring together R&D resources and industry to help develop new products that add value to crops such as wheat, canola, and lentils and other pulses.
