Murad Al-Katib and AGT win EY Entrepreneur of the Year
Al-Katib, President and CEO of Regina-based Alliance Grain Trader (AGT) Food and Ingredients, was named the EY Entrepreneur Of The Year for the Prairies in a competition organized by Ernst & Young.
AGT started production in 2003 when Al-Katib learned how many pulses were grown in the province of Saskatchewan. He slowly expanded his businesses to the best pulse growing regions in the US, Turkey, Australia, China and South Africa. The company went public in 2007 and, because of the increased demand for the products, AGT foods now ships to more than 120 countries around the world. Congratulations Murad.
