ConAgra Mills Unveils Upgraded Sustainable Facility

OMAHA, Neb.ConAgra Mills unveiled its new Oakland Mill 100,000-square-foot facility that underwent $21.7 million in operational and sustainable upgrades through state-of-the-art equipment, at a recent community celebration. The mill ships 1.4 million pounds of flour daily to local and regional bakeries, restaurants, retail operations and food companies.

Originally built as a grain storage elevator in 1927, then converted to a flour mill in 1965, the Oakland Mill is a continuing reminder of the city's proud local industry. With the upgrades, ConAgra Mills is propelling the milling industry into the 21st century with its emphasis on innovation in a broad array of areas from nutrition and farmer relationships to plant design and safety.

The mill has been serving Northern and Central California businesses and communities for nearly half a century, sourcing locally and regionally grown hard wheat from fields around Sacramento, Fresno and the Central/San Joaquin Valley. Milling both white and whole wheat flours, the facility grinds the equivalent of over 750 acres of wheat each day.
