                                                             The WID is pleased to be a part of an agreement for

                                                             Phyto Organix Foods to develop a plant-protein processing

                                                             facility in Strathmore, announced May 24, 2022.

                                                             Located on 15 acres of land from the WID, Phyto will construct

                                                             a net-zero facility at a cost of $225 million total, expected to be

                                                             operational by 2024.

                                                             A trail-blazing, Alberta-owned plant protein-based company,

                                                             Phyto Organix projects to generate $120 million annually to the

                                                             province’s GDP by processing 40,000 metric tonnes of locally

                                                             grown yellow peas.

“We’re very excited to see this investment being made in our community,” said Sean Mascaluk, WID General Manger. “Phyto will provide much-needed processing capabilities to producers in the area, including some of our irrigators.”
