PAMI is a research and engineering solutions company with locations in Humboldt, SK, Portage la Prairie, Winnipeg and Brandon, MB.

The Crop Processing Development Centre (CPDC) was built in 1999 at the Humboldt location to give processing companies a critical advantage in providing a secure, fully equipped, working-plant environment for carrying out applied research on experimental work, or to produce product runs for market-test purposes.

PAMI’s CPDC is a large, flexible and versatile facility providing clients with the essential space to setup and test individual pieces of equipment, custom products, pilot-scale processes, or full-scale developed processes without disrupting actual production facilities. As a result, research and development can advance without impacting current production. After verifying the equipment, product and process within our Crop Processing Development Centre, our clients can confidently integrate new processes into their existing workflow.
