InterAg

InterAg is the agriculture retail distribution arm of Bayer, serving independent retailers in Western Canada. We are a team of motivated individuals who perform wholesale and logistics functions of Bayer products to independent retails across Western Canada. We work closely with all areas of Bayer’s business to ensure the needs and interests of the independent business are well understood and represented.

The team was founded in 1988 as a means to support a direct business relationship with independent dealers and help position Bayer products. From humble beginnings, InterAg has continued to grow over the years and today remains as relevant to agriculture in Western Canada and Bayer as it was at inception – the same as the independent dealers we work closely with.

What do we do?

InterAg relies on building trustful relationships with all independent dealers in Western Canada to deliver the highest standard of personalized service and professional expertise.

Through these relationships we work with dealers to forecast business needs, provide product supply information and updates, manage product orders and deliveries, help the retail manage their inventory, understand credit requirements and support the retail through competitive programming. Ultimately, the goal of InterAg is to make it easy for the independent dealer to do business with Bayer.

Our Commitment

The commitment of InterAg to be the most efficient and effective marketer and supplier of crop protection products to the independent dealer. To achieve this commitment, InterAg will provide the following:

  • An organization solely dedicated to the independent dealer.
  • A commitment to provide products that meet the needs of the Canadian farmer including herbicides, insecticides, fungicides and plant growth regulators.
  • An opportunity for increased profitability through a closer working relationship and a two-way commitment of marketing products.
  • Marketing and merchandising expertise that will help maintain and expand your business.
  • An efficient distribution service guaranteeing an in-season supply of products to all dealers within 24 hours.
  • Personnel who understand the business from a marketing and distribution perspective.
  • An administration team that will handle ordering, shipping, warehousing, invoicing and credit in a modern and efficient manner.
  • A distribution and marketing arm committed to supplying independents with a full line of crop protection products.

Supporting Independents

InterAg is the only company of its kind in North America. We are a “Made in Western Canada” solution to the particular needs of our customers. Our business has always been about building strong relationships with our network of independent retailers – and it always will be.
