Feeling the Pulse: Pulse Processing Facility Announced

Fargo, ND (March 13, 2017) – Anchor Ingredients Co., LLC (“Anchor”), a Midwest-based leading supplier of quality ingredients for the export, food and pet food industries, has partnered with Beach Cooperative Grain Co. (“Beach”), a 100 year old farmer-owned coop with locations in Beach, ND, and Baker, MT, to form a joint venture for processing pulse ingredients. The joint venture will operate under the name Golden Valley Ingredients LLC and will be based in Beach, ND. The joint venture will process pulse ingredients for the export markets as well as for the domestic food and pet food industries.

The joint venture combines the global reach and product expertise of Anchor’s merchandising team with Beach’s loyal and robust grower base. 

Construction will commence this spring on a state-of-the-art processing facility in Beach, ND. The facility will be in the heart of Beach’s origination network, sit on BNSF mainline and be equipped with the latest cutting edge pulse processing and packaging equipment. Anchor will be responsible for quality control and merchandising, while Beach will handle origination and day-to-day management of the facility. The ingredients processed by the joint venture will include all pulse commodities, including but not limited topeas, lentils and chickpeas. 

“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.”
