Ardent Mills works with farmers for doubling U.S. organic wheat acres by 2019. By this aim, the
company is expanding its organic-certified milling and packaging locations.
Ardent Mills, the premier flour-milling and ingredient company, has expanded its producer program to a total of seven U.S. states and a Canadian province while adding more organic-certified milling and packaging locations along with storage.
Ardent Mills maintains strong producer relationships, contracting organic wheat acres in Colorado, Idaho, Kansas, Michigan, Nebraska, Texas and Wyoming and a Canadian province Saskatchewan to its program in 2016. Soon the company will have a total of eight organic-certified milling and packaging locations along with a storage facility, all focused on quality, consistency, and performance.
"Since our initial announcement, we have continued to see growing demand from restaurants and food companies for organic wheat flour for use in fresh, packaged and menu recipes,” states Ardent Mills CEO, Dan Dye. “This is a significant opportunity for growers to become a part of an emerging market and to create additional value for their crops on the path to organic certification. We have been providing organic flour since 1996 and are well positioned to meet this bold challenge.”
