Roquette Pea Protein Manufacturing Plant, Portage la Prairie, Manitoba, Canada
Food ingredients maker Roquette has announced its plans to build a new pea protein production plant in Portage la Prairie, Canada.
The $304m facility will enable Roquette to meet growing demand for plant proteins in North America and worldwide. It will also strengthen the company's position as one of the leading pea protein producers.
Construction is expected to commence in the second half of 2017, with completion scheduled for 2019. The plant is expected to employ 150 people when in operation, with an estimated payroll of $9m a year. The project is expected to generate 350 jobs during the design and construction phase.

Canada was chosen as it is one of the world's biggest pea producing countries accounting for 30% of global production. The Manitoba region provides a number of advantages, such as highly-skilled and well-educated labour, as well as reliable and sustainable hydroelectric power.
Canada also has strong logistic infrastructure and is a well-connected transportation hub to the rest of the continent.
Construction is expected to benefit the agriculture industry in the chosen region, Manitoba.
