The Manitoba Government and Roquette announced today that the France based company will be following through in building a new $400 million dollar Pea Processing Plant to be built near Portage la Prairie. 
Premier Brian Pallister and Agriculture Minister Ralph Eichler made the announcement made at the Legislative Building during Global Pulse Day.
Pallister says, "We are pleased to enter into this historic partnership with Roquette, which will result in an unparalleled investment in Manitoba's food-processing and agricultural industry."
Construction is expected to begin in the Rural Municipality of Portage la Prairie before the end of 2017.
