Evergreen Industries Evergreen Industries Ltd. of Rosetown, west of Gretna, had its beginning in 1952 when there was no market for cereal grains. Founder Abe Froese was engaged in a major farming operation in the early fifties and found a market in the USA for registered cereal grains. Two cleaning mills were installed in a small granary on the home premises in Rosetown (formerly Rosenort), nine miles west of Gretna. As business expanded from selling his own grain and buying from neighbours and more distant farmers, Mr. Froese began an expansion in 1960, operating under the firm name of Evergreen Seed Farms Sales & Service Ltd. As the demand for registered grain declined, the mode of operation was changed to the processing of special crops - whole peas, split peas, mustard, canary seed, buckwheat, etc. A large expansion was completed and the firm name changed to Evergreen Industries Ltd. The products processed in the modern, spacious plant are marketed both in Canada and in foreign countries such as the USA, England, Italy, Japan and South America. The most recent market has been found in the Asian countries.
