Virtex Grain Exchange Ltd. was formed in Saskatchewan in 2009 after the closing of the exclusively farmer owned Farm Corp united Grain Pool Ltd formerly known as Farm Corp Marketing International. We at Virtex Grain consist of a small group of farmers from Farm Corp plus new farmer shareholders.
Virtex acts as a grain selling agent of all types of grain for its current members and owners. Its main sales focus is the Clearfield Canola program and exclusive Hulless Barley contract program.
Virtex Grain in 2015 acquired a 45,000 sq ft multi-use food processing facility outside of Saskatoon, SK., operating under Virtex Farm Foods Ltd. Also, in 2015, Virtex Grain created North Prairie Family Farms to process, bottle and market a unique and high-quality non-GMO Cold Pressed Canola Oil called North Prairie Gold.
