Providing Technical Expertise & Market Support to the Canadian Wheat Value Chain
Cigi has over 45 years of experience working with the wheat value chain domestically and internationally. About 90 percent of Cigi’s work is focused on Canadian wheat including customized programs, training and targeted technical support for customers and commercial partners. We also undertake applied research focused on crop attributes and end-product functionality.
Below are reports and posters on analytical methods, quality data and research activities related to wheat as well as Cigi’s wheat market support programs for the current fiscal year.
In-Market Technical Support Programs for Customers & Programs for Domestic Industry
Cigi provides customized programs, training and targeted technical support for wheat customers at its Winnipeg location and at customer facilities internationally. These efforts ensure that customers understand the quality characteristics that are unique to Canadian wheat and how to optimize the performance of Canadian wheat in milling and end-product processing.
We work with our members and representatives from the grain value chain to review priority regions for Cigi’s in-market technical support activities. Cigi’s programs for domestic industry members are focused on increasing understanding of end-use customer wheat quality requirements.
