La Ronge Wild Rice was established as a processing plant for the Northern based operations of growing and harvesting wild rice. It converts the wild rice into a product that can be sold on any store shelf. Wild rice grows freely on many northern lakes and rivers and is a completely organic product with no chemicals or pesticides. As a result wild rice has grown to be an export for the Norther Saskatchewan region with many healthy attributes to assist in the marketing of the product.
Created in 1982, Peter Ballantyne Cree Nation, Lac La Ronge Indian Band, Meadow Lake Tribal Council and a number of other Northern partners own the company based in La Ronge. With a management team, that has familiarity with the industry and region, La Ronge Wild Rice Corporation has become known for representing the interests of the growers.
