“We are excited to partner with Anchor and gain access to their strong customer relationships around the world,” said Rick Miske, president of Beach’s Board of Directors. “With pulse acres continuing to expand in our area, we knew we had to partner with the right organization who can handle the food safety requirements as well as provide visibility into the global market to give our growers a premium bid for their pulse commodities. 

We are confident we found the ideal partner who can provide the necessary input our grower base demands, and who has a similar mindset for the way we do business.”
