Stats show that for the first quarter of 2023 agri-food exports are estimated to be $6 million, that's up 75 percent from the same period last year.
Agriculture Minister David Marit says increased export numbers demonstrate the strength and resilience of our agri-food sector,
"Trade statistics like these reinforce Saskatchewan's sustainability story internationally, showing global investors that Saskatchewan producers are in an excellent position to feed the world today and in the future."
In 2022, Saskatchewan exported a record $18.5 billion in agri-food products.
The province's top agri-food exports remain canola oil, canola seed, non-durum wheat, durum, and lentils.
Overall, the numbers show the sector is on its way to reaching its target of growing Saskatchewan's agri-food exports to $20 billion by 2030, as outlined in Saskatchewan's Growth Plan.
