  • Grains Analytical Testing Laboratory opens in Guelph

    GUELPH -- Grain Farmers of Ontario and SGS Canada Inc. unveiled the Grains Analytical Testing Laboratory last month. Grain industry professionals from across Ontario were present for the historic occasion.

    CEO of Grain Farmers of Ontario Barry Senft said, "This grand opening is the first time a producer organization and a private company joined to open a lab of this nature in Canada. We are pleased to work with SGS Canada on this initiative and look forward to the value-added opportunities it will bring Ontario farmers through a better understanding of Ontario cereal crops."

    The laboratory will better position Canadian farmers in both domestic and export markets, and will grow to include corn and soybeans in the future. Data gained will be used by Grain Farmers of Ontario to conduct their annual Ontario Wheat Quality scoop, in addition to other market development and research projects.

    The laboratory acts as an addition to SGS Canada's Agriculture Testing Facility, which already performs soil and feed testing and greenhouse analytical services. Don Slobodzian, Vice-President Of Agriculture and Food for SGS Canada, said, "This lab is our way to help this industry be more competitive, better informed and more innovative."

    Located at SGS's testing facility in Guelph, the Grains Analytical Testing Laboratory offers a full suite of tests, including rheological testing, physical dough and bake testing, protein levels and more. The lab will also offer commercial services for Ontario, Canadian and North American millers and producers.
