Canada has one of the world's best environments for growing top-quality soybeans. From planting to harvest and beyond, the industry is ready to surpass global standards and assure reliable delivery.

Canada is envied around the world for its clean air, productive farmland and pristine waters. The vast expanses of farmland have deep, fertile soil to support healthy roots and strong, productive soybean crops for both food and commodity uses.

High quality starts at the breeding and development stage, which in Canada benefits from both public and private research. Universities, government agencies, and seed companies develop characteristics tailored to the specifications of international customers. Extensive field-testing and selection ensures that only the best varieties are brought into commercial production.

Careful testing and monitoring by the Canadian Grain Commission (CGC) assures high quality, safety and respect for the biotechnology approval processes of importing countries.

As one of the world's largest food-producing economies, Canada is deeply invested in the grain-handling business. This commitment means importers can count on fast, efficient, reliable delivery, which ultimately results in better value when purchasing Canadian soybeans.

  • Andrew Jones - Director of Corporate Affairs, Soy Canada
