Commodities: Grain

In early 2010, Ceres Global Ag Corp. purchased Minneapolis-based Whitebox Commodities Holdings Corp. and its 11 grain-handling operations, now operating under the name Riverland Ag Corp., in North America.  This purchse included the former AGP grain elevator in Duluth, which had been acquired by Whitebox in 2008. The elevator is well-known in the industry for its grain cleaning system, with its wheat testing low in dockage and high in protein. It also provides a high test weight (i.e. number of pounds per bushel). This facility has a 4.1 million bushel capacity. The elevator was originally operated by Capitol Elevator, a company dating back to 1905. International Multifoods, which had absorbed Capitol, sold the elevator in 1991 to Ag Processing Inc.

The elevator had sat empty for a year when private investors formed TN LLC to purchase the site in 2017. The slip is dredged to Seaway depth, and the new owners intend to keep it that way.  The elevator is still up for sale.
