Hensall, ON, Canada, November 15, 2023 - Hensall Co-op, a farmer-owned and fully independent agricultural co-operative, is pleased to announce the acquisition of Minn-Dak Growers Ltd. (Minn-Dak). This strategic move brings together two prominent entities in the North American specialty crop market. 

For over five decades, Minn-Dak has been a pioneer in processing and marketing specialty crops from the Upper Great Plains—the region comprising Montana, North Dakota, South Dakota, Nebraska, Iowa, and Minnesota—and beyond. Operating from well-established facilities in Grand Forks, ND; Donaldson, MN; and Dickinson, ND, Minn-Dak supplies high-quality mustard and buckwheat ingredients to the global food industry. Their distinctive, tailor-made processes and integrated research and development approach have led to the creation of unparalleled products. 

Jeremy Peterson, Vice President of Minn-Dak, reflected on the company's legacy, stating, "Harris Peterson, my grandfather, founded Minn-Dak with a vision to cultivate a market for local farmers. The acquisition by Hensall Co-op aligns seamlessly with our commitment to creating value-added opportunities for specialty crop farmers, ensuring the continuation of his vision." 

This acquisition promises a smooth transition for Minn-Dak's growers and customers. Brad Chandler, CEO of Hensall Co-op, expressed enthusiasm about the collaboration, saying, "We eagerly anticipate partnering with the Minn-Dak team, combining our expertise to provide growers with an expanded portfolio of value-added crop opportunities. Minn-Dak's research focus aligns seamlessly with our strategy to enter new markets with customized products, fostering growth in existing markets and broadening Hensall Co-op’s global footprint.”
