About Us

InfraReady Products, initially founded in 1994 by the Saskatchewan Wheat Pool, has evolved significantly over the years. It began with the aim of adding value to cereal grains before they were exported from the province.

Starting with no products or clients, the company, led by Mark Pickard, managed to carve a unique niche in the food ingredients market. By 1998, the company had developed 100 products, hired 13 employees, and was exporting ingredients globally. Even after the Wheat Pool divested itself from InfraReady, Mark, with the help of two investors, bought out the company and continued its mission. Today, InfraReady offers over 250 custom-designed, whole grain products sourced from top-notch producers, catering to the diverse needs of food processors worldwide.

Our Process

InfraReady's precooked products leverage an innovative precooking technology that not only shortens cooking times but also enhances the quality of the final product. This technology initiates the starch gelatinization process in cereal grains and pulses, making them cook more quickly and improving their flavour and texture. 

When applied to oilseeds, the technology lowers the microbial load, thereby enhancing food safety. As a result, InfraReady's focus on quality and innovation is reshaping food preparation and consumption while setting new industry standards.

Contrary to popular belief, Lorem Ipsum is not simply random text. It has roots in a piece of classical Latin literature from 45 BC, making it over 2000 years old. Richard McClintock, a Latin professor at Hampden-Sydney College in Virginia, looked up one of the more obscure Latin words, consectetur, from a Lorem Ipsum passage, and going through the cites of the word in classical literature, discovered the undoubtable source. Lorem Ipsum comes from sections 1.10.32 and 1.10.33 of "de Finibus Bonorum et Malorum" (The Extremes of Good and Evil) by Cicero, written in 45 BC. This book is a treatise on the theory of ethics, very popular during the Renaissance. The first line of Lorem Ipsum, "Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet..", comes from a line in section 1.10.32.The standard chunk of Lorem Ipsum used since the 1500s is reproduced below for those interested. Sections 1.10.32 and 1.10.33 from "de Finibus Bonorum et Malorum" by Cicero are also reproduced in their exact original form, accompanied by English versions from the 1914 translation by H. Rackham.
