In our previous instalment of our ongoing look into Saskatchewan’s rapidly growing economy, we looked at its mining sector. Today, we’re going to take a closer peek into the sector at the heart of this province's success. We’re going to look at Saskatchewan’s Agri-value sector.
We’ve talked briefly about Saskatchewan’s Agri-value sector before, but today we’re going to go more in depth.
More specifically, we’re going to look at why this sector is such a reliable beacon for those searching for long-term employment amid such global uncertainty, and why the time is now to book a short term rental to start looking for that perfect new career.
But first let’s answer what we’re sure a lot of you are asking:
Also known as Value-Added Agriculture, Agri-Value was traditionally associated with food processing, but has since grown to include everything from extracting pea protein to growing organics.
Essentially, it’s the agricultural sector that enhances food to make the end product something more valuable to consumers.
The secret to Saskatchewan’s success comes down to its combination of being the world’s leading exporter of several food crops, such as lentils, peas, canola, and oats, while also boasting an excellent environment to nurture long-term growth for businesses in the Agri-value sector.
This is achieved through a variety of financial incentives, a resilient supply chain network and easy access to incredible opportunities to innovate.
A prime example of how Saskatchewan fosters innovation is the Saskatchewan Food Industry Development Centre. For over 20 years, the Centre has been nurturing new ideas in the sector, helping small companies flourish by supporting them to bring new products to market and expand their businesses.
Exporting more than $14 billion annually, it’s safe to say the Agri-Value sector in Saskatchewan is not slowing down. The more than 300 food processing sites found from Saskatoon to Regina alone are shipping $4 billion in goods around the world every year.
And yet, that number is only set to get bigger.
The plant-based food market is one of the fastest growing food markets in the world right now, and Saskatchewan finds itself in the center of it.
That’s because not only does Saskatchewan provide the world with the most raw materials at the heart of these foods, such as pea protein, but the province also helps move business into these emerging markets by leveraging its very talented labour force, and supporting the science and technology grow alongside the industry.
If you’re looking for a rewarding employment opportunity, you need to consider moving to Saskatchewan. While other places around the world are struggling to provide their people with stable employment, this Canadian province isn’t breaking a sweat.
That’s because at the end of the day, no matter what the economy is like, people will always need to eat, and this province is doing a great job in feeding them.
Companies from across a wide range of industries are eager to take on new talent from around the world to as their businesses rapidly expand. If you’re looking for a career with the potential to grow substantially in the years to come, then cities like Regina and Saskatoon are looking for you.
Like the other industries we’ve mentioned in this series, the Agri-value sector is growing, and it’s growing fast.
If you’re looking to jump start a new career in this province, then you need to book your short term rental now. The truth is, people across the word are catching wind of the provinces’s potential to support long term careers in high paying jobs, and are flocking to the province to get started.
