VANCOUVER, Jan. 13, 2012 /CNW/ - ILTA Grain Inc of Surrey BC, through
it's subsidiary ILTA Processing Inc., is pleased to announce it has
acquired 4 specialty grain and pulse facilities from the Parkland
Grain/Pulse group of companies effective January 15th, 2012. The facilities are located at North Battleford (2), Swift
Current, and Cutknife, Saskatchewan.
The current 45 employees of Parkland will join ILTA's staff. Further

integral part of the growth, expansion, and development of ILTA.
The management and shareholders of ILTA have been involved in the

forward to providing both growers and and our global client base with
many marketing options and opportunities as the Western Canadian
grain industry continues to evolve. ILTA is also developing 2 new
strategically placed specialty grain/pulse facilities in Saskatchewan
with expected completion in 2012-2013.
