Thanks for visiting CWB’s website! Effective immediately, please note the site will begin to reflect exciting changes for CWB. G3 Global Grain Group (G3), a newly established Canadian agribusiness based in Winnipeg, Manitoba, was named as the successful investor in CWB, and that investment transaction has now been completed. Moving forward, G3 is combining the assets and operations of CWB across Western and Central Canada with Bunge Canada’s grain holdings in Ontario and Quebec.

The finalization of this investment, initially announced in April 2015, completes CWB's transformation, and marks the introduction of the first new significant competitor for grain in the Western Canadian agriculture industry in decades.

G3 will operate the combined businesses under the name G3 Canada Limited. The process of renaming the assets acquired by G3 is underway, but is expected to take place over a multi-month transition period.
