Monette Seeds has now acquired its Canadian Grain Commission (CGC) licence for its Swift Current facility.

The paperwork is done, with the company providing the needed security and meeting all CGC requirements.

Jordan Johnson, the director of seed operations for Monette Seeds says it's important that farmers deal with a licenced and bonded operation.

"So basically if a company does go bankrupt. Whatever grain settlements have not been paid due to bankruptcy, it allows the producers to be paid for their grain  loss."

He says for farmers dealing with a CGC-licenced facility it just provides them with that extra assurance they'll get paid.

Monette Seeds Swift Current operation provides seed cleaning, marketing, and pulse processing for red and green lentils, green and yellow peas, and canary seed.
