PORTAGE LA PRAIRIE – A French company is building one of the world’s largest pea processing plants right here in Manitoba.
The $400 million facility will be built in Portage la Prairie.
It’s one of the biggest private sector investments ever in the province, according to Premier Brian Pallister.
The plant will create about 150 jobs with construction expected to start before the end of 2017.
Canada is actually the largest producer of peas in the world.
