While the trend globally has been to have fewer but larger milling companies, the world continues to rapidly increase its production of flour and other cereal grain products. Flour mills today operate using state-of-the-art machinery and highly-skilled personnel. As the world continues to grow in wealth and population, efficient processing of cereal grains, which provide nearly half of the world’s caloric demand, will be critical to satisfying the global diet.
Milling grain into flour of the desired qualities is a very challenging task. Millers all over the world today have the same goals of producing a product that meets the buyer’s specifications. This is not an easy task since each year’s crop of grain will always have different qualities and characteristics. Yet skilled millers are able to take the given grain and create the finished products that will satisfy the needs and tastes of the customer.
