Richardson Milling operates in a global environment driven by consumer demand and with respect to oats, the demand for products treated with less pesticides continues to grow. While we stand behind the safety of conventionally produced oat products, we need to continue to supply global markets to meet this demand.
In January 2021, we launched a program focused on sourcing and processing oats that have not been treated with pesticides applied as a pre-harvest desiccant.
We are committed to the development and use of new technology, processes, and practices in all areas of our business. We will always support food safety and science-based evidence in both Agriculture and Food Processing.
