Richardson invests $120 million in southwest Alberta

Written by

Richardson International Limited is investing $120 million in its canola processing plant in Lethbridge to maximize operating efficiencies and modernize the facility to significantly increase canola crush capability.  

Albert and Shirley Gruninger farm and ranch two miles west of Del Bonita, in southern Alberta.
Albert came to the area with his family in 1950 and married Shirley in 1963.
The consolidation of several small operations into a few larger ones has made a significant change in the area.
“Our community has really gotten little,” Shirley says. “We used to have 90 post office boxes out here. Now, we’re lucky if we have 30.”
Still operating on the same land more than 60 years after their wedding, the Gruningers are the BMO Farm Family of the Year for 2016 representing Cardston County.
