In 1883 Herman Levi and Jacob Loew founded Capitol Milling Company to mill flour on a large scale in the Los Angeles area. In 1999 Capitol Food Company was established, and today the Levi and the Jensen families continue to provide bakers and food purveyors with the highest-quality products nearly 140 years later.
From day one our mission has never changed: To make good things for and with good people.
The ways in which we accomplish this goal have expanded across the continent, been invented and reinvented as needed, and embraced the supply chain more fully than ever. With each step, the roots of our original mission continue to grow.
We began in 1986 as a small oat milling company in Oregon. With an eye for finding the right fit at the right time, we have grown steadily ever since. Today, Grain Millers is a leading international agri-business with diversified interests in whole grain manufacturing and merchandising, organic and conventional consumer food products, and the import and export of commodities.
The Food Division of Shawnee Milling creates a variety of flour, cornmeal, and baking mix products to meet the baking needs of our customers. Our special packaging capabilities allow us to offer a range of sizes from several ounces to bulk transport.
Shawnee Milling’s Flour Mill has the flexibility to mill a wide variety of wheat to meet our customer’s diverse needs and is located in the heart of the wheat belt, providing access to the finest grains available. When considering the added variety of products from Shawnee Milling’s Corn Mill and Dry Mix Plant, there are very few grain processing companies that can offer this breadth and depth of grain-based products from a single location. These resources allow Shawnee Milling to produce our broad line of products and welcome custom milling and mixing projects for our customers.
A large part of Shawnee Milling’s success is the result of being the best, most prepared, most responsive supplier to each customer. If you are looking for that kind of personal attention from one of the milling industry’s finest companies, please contact us, and let our staff of loyal employees prove to you how dedicated we are to the traditions J. Lloyd Ford started back in 1906.
