Wildrose Commodities Holdings Ltd is a new start up joint venture business between Koralta Agri-Business Inc, parent company to Wildrose, and Co-Invest Group Inc, an Asian global investment company.
Our mission is to develop the lupin market in Canada with the intention to export lupins and other food and feed commodities to South Korea and other Asian countries. Initially in 2020 and beyond, yellow peas and other commodity crops will be sourced here in western Canada for export.
There has been extensive research in Alberta on lupins over many years by Alberta Agriculture and Forestry researchers and their partners which has confirmed lupins can be successfully grown in Alberta and probably other provinces. There is increasing demand for plant protein and lupin has the highest protein content versus other pulse crops such as field peas, lentils and faba beans.
Se Hong Park, CEO and new Canadian, is excited about the potential to develop this new crop for Canada and through his contacts in South Korea and other Asian countries. He is confident he has an export market for lupins once Wildrose reaches commercial levels of production. His future plans will also include a processing and fractionation plant in Alberta and PEI. Fractionation has tremendous potential for use in pet food, cosmetics and for human consumption.
