Glanbia chooses Sioux Falls, SD for replacement flax plant

Last updated on 30-Nov-2012 at 16:07 GMT2012-11-30T16:07:07Z

Glanbia Nutritionals Ingredient Technologies, (GNIT) a manufacturer of  protein and flaxseed and other grain  ingredients, announced it will build a 40,000 sq. ft. cereal ingredient processing facility in Sioux Falls, SD.  The Sioux Falls location will replace the company’s plant in Angusville, Manitoba that was destroyed by fire in March 2012.

GNIT, which initially concentrated on the dairy proteins business, entered the flax business when it purchased the former Pizzey’s Milling, North America’s largest supplier of flaxseed ingredients, in September 2007. The Angusville plant had employed 58 at the time of the fire. The Sioux Falls facility is expected to create 38 new jobs there. Glanbia started its site search by engaging the services of Dallas-based Site Seletction LLC and  chose Sioux Falls in cooperation with the Sioux Falls Development Corporation.

The new facility in Sioux Falls will produce MeadowPure Quality whole and milled flaxseed ingredients as well as other seed and grain products.
