Pulses

Our established global supply chains enable us to source from both small-scale and large- scale farmers, exporting and distributing via our established sales, distribution, and warehousing networks to consumers globally.

Yellow & Green Pea

Our key sourcing market for yellow and green peas is Canada where we own and operate 4 processing plants and a pea protein extraction facility.

Available in container vessel and in bulk.

Mung Bean

Our mung beans are sourced from Australia and Myanmar. We also have a mung bean seeding business in Australia.

Lentils

We offer green and red lentils sourced from Canada and India.

Others

Rice

With our origin teams across Asia Pacific, we are perfectly positioned to meet our customer’s needs around the globe, supplying rice for bulk and container vessel.

Sugar

We specialise in the trading of both white and raw sugar and provide a one stop solution for the sugar requirements of our clients – from varying specifications to different origins to different packing requirements (bulk to bags).

Downstream & Agri-Processing Plants

Besides working mid-stream with farmers and conducting sale and fulfilment of agri-commodity products, we are also moving our business operations downstream, to better address issues of food insecurity, climate change, and most importantly, work towards our sustainability goals on a greater scale.

 

In Canada, we have five state-of-the-art throughput grain and pulses processing facilities. In Australia, we own three agri-processing facilities. We are one of the largest grain processing and packing plants in Queensland specialising in mung beans, chickpeas, food grade pulses, wheat, barley and feed grains including maize, feed barley and oats. 

HerbYvore is the downstream brand of Agrocrop. HerbYvore is a plant-based food brand that focuses on using soy-free plant protein as raw ingredient in its products. For now, all of HerbYvore’s products are made with pea protein.

HerbYvore’s products include Herbyvore Plant Protein Block, a versatile ingredient for plant-based cooking and baking. This high-in-pea-protein and high in calcium ingredient looks like tofu, cooks like a non-melting cheese, and provides a binding effect that is needed in some plant-based recipes to replace the use of dairy and/or meat in recipes. .

HerbYvore has also recently launched a range of plant-based, dairy-free cheese range that contains protein from faba beans and peas. 

Pulses and Climate Change

As a key player in pulses trading, we recognise the role pulses play in combating climate change and addressing food insecurity concerns. Food production, food security and climate change are intrinsically linked. Whether in the form of droughts, floods or hurricanes, climate change impacts every level of food production as well as ultimately, the price instability of food and the food security of affected farming communities.

Introducing pulses into farming systems can be key to increasing resilience to climate change. Pulses are climate smart as they simultaneously adapt to climate change and contribute towards mitigating its effects. The inclusion of pulses in crop rotations utilises symbiotic bacteria to fix nitrogen, which is partly transferred to subsequent crops, increasing their yields. In forage pulses/grass mixtures, nitrogen could be transferred from pulse to grass, increasing pasture production.

When included in livestock feed, pulses’ high protein content contributes to increase the food conversion ratio while decreasing methane emissions from ruminants, thus at the same time reducing greenhouse gas emissions.

Increasing Consumption of Pulses through Plant Protein Extraction

According to Beans is How, a campaign announced in COP-27, increasing consumption of pulses is a quick and easy way to solve some the world’s most pressing problems related to food security and climate change. To increase the consumption of pulses, we need to increase production and also stimulate demand. To increase consumption of pulses, ‘Beans is How’ is targeting foodservice to get more pulses on dishes in menus globally. Beyond this, Agrocorp’s work in increasing pulse consumption started from late 2020, where we started operations of a plant protein extraction facility in Cut Knife, Saskatchewan, Canada.

Our facility can produce industry leading 60% protein concentrate and the peas used in production are procured directly from local farmers.

We have also recently entered into a joint venture with Megmilk Snow Brand, one of the largest dairy companies in Japan, to further our capabilities downstream in the plant protein extraction business. This joint venture seeks to leverage the strengths of both companies and will see the setting up of a factory in Malaysia to manufacture soy-free plant protein products like pea protein, pea starch and pea fibre.

Pea protein can be used in a variety of plant-based food applications in plant-based beverages, plant-based meats, as well as in plant-based cheese, such as HerbY-Cheese by our downstream brand, HerbYvore.
