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.
Demand for quality organic, conventional, and gluten-free products continues to increase globally. Through relationships with farmers, PHM Brands acquires high-quality grains to produce and develop high-quality flours, baking mixes, cereals, and grain-based products.
With a diverse group of services such as grain cleaning, flour milling, pathogen reduction, and custom blending, combined with in-house formulation, PHM Brands produces grain-based products globally for some of the largest grocery retailers.
We know grain—it’s been central to our business since the beginning. Today, we have the network, confidence and creativity to make connections between farmers, processors, manufacturers, facilities, shippers and carriers worldwide. We see the big picture, we keep our promises and we take care of our customers’ products every step of the way.
