Focus on local food

Crosby native Les Knudson, global process manager for AGT Foods, displays product samples as he speaks to members of the Minot Area Chamber EDC and Minot City Council Thursday, prior to a tour of the Minot plant. Staffed with 92 employees in Minot, the company is hiring. AGT Foods purchased the former Food Services of America building behind Corbett Field and will be expanding its operations there with an initial 25-30 employees, ramping up to 45-50 within the first year, Knudson said. Headquartered in Regina, Saskatchewan, AGT Foods is an international company that turns lentils, peas, beans and chickpeas into staple foods and products for the ingredients market. Its products can be found in everything from pet food to gluten-free pasta.
