Ardent Mills is North America’s leading flour supplier and grain innovator. With more than 35 community flour mills and mixing facilities throughout the U.S., Canada and Puerto Rico, we offer the broadest range of premium multi-use flours, whole grains, mixes and custom multi-grain blends.
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.
We value our strong relationships with local growers and together we are able to create world-class oat products while employing state-of-the art technology.
With the most extensive oat supply in North America, we source the best ingredients to create a full range of safe and high-quality custom products that are sold worldwide, including a wide variety of organic oats and certified gluten-free options. Starting in January 2021, we will only source oats that have not been treated with a pre-harvest desiccant.
