Canadian Grain Commission concludes Payment Protection Program review for Mustard Capital

Apr. 23. 2012, Winnipeg, MB - Producers who did not receive payment for grain sold to Mustard Capital have received full compensation for their eligible claims through the Canadian Grain Commission's Payment Protection Program.

Mustard Capital was a licensed grain dealer located in Gravelbourg, Saskatchewan, until February 1, 2012.

"Canadian grain producers have the freedom to do business with a grain elevator or dealer of their choice. When producers choose to deal with a company licensed by the Canadian Grain Commission, they are covered by the Payment Protection Program. In the case of Mustard Capital, producers who were not paid for their deliveries 90 days prior to the company not being licensed, had the right to submit a claim for compensation," said Elwin Hermanson, Chief Commissioner for the Canadian Grain Commission.
