G3 Canada, a key player in the grain industry, has announced the renewal of its partnership with the Port of Québec, extending their collaboration for another 30 years. This renewal solidifies Québec City's status as a critical hub for agri-food exports in Eastern Canada.
G3 Canada, known for its rapid growth and expertise in the grain sector, specializes in the import and export of commodities like corn, soybeans, wheat, and canola. The company's terminal in Québec City, which has been operational for over half a century, is strategically positioned to serve agricultural producers in Eastern Québec.
