Carr’s to Build New £17 Million Flour Mill

Carr’s Milling Industries, the UK agriculture, food and engineering group, has approved the construction of a £17 million state-of-the art flour mill adjacent to the Port of Kirkcaldy in Scotland. The decision was taken following a board review of a range of options for improving the financial performance of the group’s flour milling business, taking into account the needs of today’s bakers and food manufacturers.

The performance of our flour milling business has continued to be depressed by the long-term capacity issues experienced by the industry. However, the utilisation of the wheat handling facility at the Port of Kirkcaldy, adjacent to Carr’s mill, has far exceeded expectations and, in addition to giving significant flexibility, has enabled Carr’s to secure supplies of high quality wheat at competitive prices in the challenging grain market. The new flour mill will be at the forefront of mill design, innovation and technology, with commissioning expected in September 2013.
