Viterra Partners With CFL Hall of Famer Don Narcisse to Promote Healthy Lifestyles

REGINA, SASKATCHEWAN--(Marketwire - April 5, 2011) - Viterra Inc. (TSX:VT) (ASX:VTA) is pleased to announce it is teaming up with former Saskatchewan Roughrider Don Narcisse to host a youth football camp in Regina at Mosaic Stadium on May 7, 2011.

Viterra will act as the presenting sponsor of the Don Narcisse All Star Event, which supports KidSport™, a children's charity that assists children from families facing financial obstacles to become involved in community sports programs. Through an online contest, Viterra will also offer opportunities for youth requiring financial assistance from across the Province to participate in the camp all expenses paid.

"As a leading food ingredients company, Viterra is focused on promoting healthy lifestyles among its employees and the communities in which we operate. This sponsorship reflects our commitment to Saskatchewan and its youth, and our belief in the positive impact sport has on developing teamwork and leadership skills, along with supporting healthy nutritional habits," said Mayo Schmidt, Viterra's President and Chief Executive Officer.

The camp is for children ages 8 to 18, and will teach football fundamentals and provide position specific training. Mr. Narcisse has recruited several past and present CFL players to assist in facilitating the clinic, including Henry Burris, Kerry Joseph, Larry Thompson and Henry "Gizmo" Williams. The day will conclude with the "End Zone Experience" Gala Dinner at the Delta Hotel, with a keynote address by Georgette Reed, Olympian and Canadian track champion, and daughter of CFL Hall of Famer George Reed.

"This event is a great example of teamwork and what can be accomplished through the collaborative efforts of individuals and organizations with a shared focus," said Don Narcisse. "I am proud to lead this event with their support, and to provide our youth an opportunity to grow and develop valuable life skills."

Camp fees are $75 per child and will include a tour of Mosaic Stadium, as well as a photo and autograph session with CFL celebrities. For more information or to register, please visit or contact Lisa Peters at (306) 539-5339. To participate in Viterra's online contest, please visit
