The Minnesota Soybean Processors will be working with CGB Enterprises to build the new soybean processing plant near Casselton, North Dakota. The joint venture will be known as the North Dakota Soybean Processors. The Casselton facility is expected to crush 42.5 million bushels of soybeans in the first year, providing a more competitive market in North Dakota. In a statement, CGB Soybean Processing Senior Vice President Steve O’Nan said this project’s been in the works since 2019. A groundbreaking on the new plant is scheduled for spring 2022, with plans to have a fully operational plant in 2024, subject to approvals. The project is expected to have 50 to 60 new jobs. The new facility is being built about 60 miles away from ADM’s soy crush facility in Spiritwood, North Dakota.
