Information @ a Glance

  • The objective of milling is to produce the maximum quantity of products at a given level of quality. This is done by a sequence of breaking, grinding and separating operations. In the whole process we grind the wheat in grooved rolls softly, so that purest form of Bran can be obtained. In this process by separating the bran we can get Samolina, Sujji in the purest form.
  • In the intermediate product where we can not separate out the bran from Semoline, the Semoline obtained at this stage is called Atta. The finished semolinas from each purifier are then blended together to make the final products. The finished flour or semolinas are then redressed and stored in bulk silos. They are transferred to either bulk tankers or the bag packing plant through another redressing magnet / metal detector system.


  • Cereals processing is one of the oldest and most important of all food technologies and forms a large and important part of the food production chain. Today, the cereals processing industry is as diverse as its range of products. Hydropower used by the Greeks to turn water wheels for grinding wheat into flour, more than 2,000 years ago.
  • The new technology spelt the end of the 'village' mill. A roller mill, with the accompanying wheat handling equipment and the new ability to identify and separate mill streams, was capital intensive and required volumes of wheat which led quickly to a new centralized milling industry. It was aided and abetted, indeed, made possible, by the railways, which made the transport of wheat to mill towns and especially capital cities, much easier and financially possible.


  • The milling of wheat is basically divided into two sections viz:- cleaning section and the milling section. The milling section comprises the chaff  remover; destoner; scourer; washing machine; intensive dampner; and cockle separator. In the cleaning section, wheat is cleaned thoroughly before milling. In modern flour mills, millstones have been replaced by steel rollers. Old style reel sifters have been replaced by modern plansifters
  • The milling of flour from grain has its origins in the early history of all major civilisations. It is generally regarded as the oldest known industry. The basic milling technique was to grind the grain between two stone surfaces. This enabled the tough fibrous bran skin to be separated from the endosperm, which then was ground into a fine powder.


  • The rise in production cost has resulted in a decline in output in almost all roller flour mills in the State. The rise in the price of power meant an increase in the production cost of wheat products, rendering them uncompetitive in the market. Since wheat is a staple food among all segments of  the population, there is a constant demand in the consumer market for wheat products and the demand for these is always on the increase.
  • To produce wheat flour, wheat grains are transported to milling plant A (250 tonnes), B (300 tonnes), C (265 tonnes) and D (265 tonnes), producing a total daily production capacity of 1,080 tonnes. All mills are fully computerized and equipped with the latest technological German-imported machinery, acknowledged as the finest in the wheat flour industry for both efficiency and product quality. To store wheat flour until required, the company has built 69 silos with a total storage capacity of 8,000 tonnes, regarded as the country's biggest wheat flour silos.
  • The impact of flour fortification with iron and folic acid can have a transitional impact on people and nations. Fortifying with iron can increase national IQ by 5 percent, increase national GDP by 2 percent and prevent the deaths of 60,000 pregnant women every year. Fortifying with folic acid can significantly reduce the 200,000 cases of neural tube defects such as spinal bifida found every year in newborn babies.
