Hanfood’s plans to build an innovative 100 acre agriculture-food park facility in Nipawin has been implemented following the company’s announcement in early 2015. “I am pleased with the support we have received from the Mayor of Nipawin and the Reeves of the Rural Municipalities of Nipawin and Torch River to locate our first operation in their area,” says Andy Hu, President of Hanfood Holding Group Corp. Plans also include a 134 rail car spot loop the second of its kind in Western Canada.
“The north east area of Saskatchewan is rich in their high quality of agriculture products and we can help producers move more of their products and add value to their many diverse and niche products into the Asian and North American markets,” says Hu. Since its establishment in March 2015, Hanfood has been actively trading before their first project in Nipawin is complete. The Nipawin project will consist of 46,000 tonne grain and oilseed terminal with a 134 car rail capacity located on the old wooden elevator site in the community of Nipawin. Product priorities include wheat, oats, barley and flax. The Nipawin facility will be a high thru-put loading capable of filling 134 rail cars in 12 hours or less.
