Grain Elevators Division
As one of the oldest divisions of Co-op Embrun, investments in the Feed Division have never ceased. Most recently, Embrun Co-op Grain Elevators Division opened September 24th, 1972 and has undergone improvements and expansions ever since. Most recently we announced a partnership with Great Lakes Grain.
Co-operatively owned by farmers, Great Lakes Grain is a major player in Ontario grain marketing. This partnership enables Embrun Co-op and Great Lakes Grain to add value to the products and services we offer our clients by being more competitive, more technologically advanced, and by facilitating better planning.
Today, our 16 silos have a total storage capacity of almost 24,000 tons for corn, soy, and barley. We also have two dryers with a total drying capacity of 60 tons per hour.
service at the Grain Elevators
At the Embrun Co-op Grain Elevators, wet product (maximum humidity acceptable is 35%) is delivered by the farmer or picked up and transported by Co-op operated trucks. As needed, crops are then scaled, dried, cooled, and returned to the producer for sale. Alternatively, they may also be purchased by the Co-op for resale and distribution.
Embrun Co-op Grain Elevator Division participates in Agricorp’s Grain Financial Protection Program.

Born in Mérida, Venezuela, César grew up on the family farm. His father, an agronomist by trade, fed his passion and taught him about agriculture.
Having earned a Bachelor of Science in Agriculture from the Instituto Universitario Politécnico Satiago Mariño in Mérida, he began his career in agriculture. He has worked in Venezuela with corn silage, cacao, café, sorghum, then in Ecuador he worked for a big Agri-retailer with seed production (IP beans, potatoes, corn) and commercial field crops and greenhouse crops (corn, potatoes, tomatoes, strawberries). Since moving to Canada, he has worked for almost three years into the cannabis production (tissue culture, mother plants, commercial cannabis).
César is eager to meet new challenges and excited to provide a great service for our clients.
