Prairie Fava (prairefava.com) is an agri-food ingredient company located in Glenboro, Manitoba founded by Hailey & Cale Jefferies. Prairie Fava supplies fava bean ingredients to food processing & manufacturing companies. Processing began in 2017 shortly after Cale Jefferies joined his 5th generation family seed business - Jefferies Seeds. Through this connection with Jefferies Seeds, an exciting opportunity with fava beans in the food market is being realized. Prairie Fava and Jefferies Seeds represents a unique linkage between farmers and food manufacturing and processing companies – both of whom are motivated to meet the growing consumer demand for plant-based protein.
Fava is of high interest to the food industry. It provides a light-flavoured, high-density protein from an environmentally sustainable, non-GMO pulse crop. Fava ingredients can significantly improve flavour, texture & boost nutrition in foods. Prairie Fava provides whole & split fava & ingredients including fava bean flour & Fava Grit & Fava Flakes.
Prairie Fava is also preparing to enter the retail & online market with innovative fava products for fall of 2019!
