Where our Ingredients are Grown

Canada is the second largest producer in the world of oats and pulses. According to the FAO, Canada was responsible for 3.733 million tonnes of oats and 12.494 million tonnes of pulses (http://www.fao.org/faostat/en/#data/QC).

Avena Foods crop processing and milling facilities are located in the western prairie provinces, a major growing region for both Canadian oats and pulses.
