Grain Farmers of Ontario congratulates Greenfield Specialty Alcohols on winning the 2013 Private Business Growth Award

GUELPH, ON (December 2, 2013) – GreenField was chosen from ten finalists from across the country from a jury panel of eight notable business and academic representatives, and was announced as the winner at the Private Business Growth Award Gala in the Ballroom of the Royal York Hotel in Toronto on November 19, 2013.

GreenField's accomplishments are a testament to how Ontario’s Renewable Fuels commitment has delivered to improve our environment while growing Ontario’s agri-economy.  Ontario’s ethanol mandate creates jobs, produces cleaner fuel for cars on the road and results in a predictable market for the corn grown by Grain Farmers of Ontario members.

“Ethanol is a clean, local fuel that provides a dependable market for Ontario grain farmers,” says Henry Van Ankum, Chair, Grain Farmers of Ontario. “Agriculture in Ontario is fortunate to have an innovative company like GreenField Specialty Alcohols that adds value to our farmer-members in Ontario and we congratulate them on winning this prestigious award.”

The annual award was presented for the first time this year and aims to recognize private Canadian businesses that successfully create growth beyond the top and bottom line through a wide range of activities.

Market Trends Report for June-July 2017

Monday, June 12, 2017

It is a critical time of the year for grain markets. Across the US corn belt as well as Ontario, farmers have been planting since mid April. It continues. As of May 28th 91% of US corn has been planted and 67% of US soybeans. There are wide variations on this theme as the Eastern and Southern corn belt has seen more of its share of wet weather causing many planting delays. As we move into late June it is a time where the US crop is setting up to be made and marketing decisions for that crop are accentuated by market volatility. The June 9th USDA report gave us another indication of the supply of grain in the US and around the world.
