Hollywood director James Cameron and his wife, Suzy Amis Cameron, have announced they are investing in an organic pea processing plant in Saskatchewan.

The Oscar-winning Cameron appeared Monday in Vanscoy, a village southwest of Saskatoon, to say the couple have formed Verdient Foods to handle 160,000 tonnes of organic pea protein.

He said that, once operational, the plant will become the largest organic pea protein facility in North America.

The Camerons have entered into a four-year research contract with the non-profit Saskatchewan Food Industry Development Centre.

The aim is to develop value-added organic food products that will be produced by Canadian and global companies using ingredients from the Verdient plant.

Cameron is a Canadian-born filmmaker behind the blockbuster movies Titanic and Avatar.

His wife is an environmental advocate and former actor.
