Bay State Milling to Open New Grain Elevator in Arizona

Flour and plant-based ingredients manufacturer Bay State Milling said Tuesday that it is moving forward with plans to build a new grain storage elevator at its flour mill in Tolleson, AZ. The company said the new facility will enable it to better manage its commercial scale “identity preserved” supply chains for ingredients.

“This is another step in developing an infrastructure network to drive the future of specialty wheat milling at scale,” Ed Fish, vice president and general manager of Bay State Milling’s Varietal Solutions business unit, said in a company press release. 

Bay State Milling recently entered into agreements with Arista Cereal Technologies and Arcadia Biosciences to serve as the exclusive commercial supplier of high fiber wheat flour sold in North America under the HealthSense brand. In addition, the company said it has been working to develop strategic partnerships, make investments in assets and capabilities to develop and run varietal-specific supply chains and ingredients that have nutritional or functional qualities.

“We are excited to be leaders in creating highly valued ingredients from specialty crops. Consumers increasingly expect more from their food – better nutrition, transparency, sustainability, and the same great taste,” Fish said. “This elevator and the other investments we are making at Bay State Milling offer unique value for our customers and our farmers looking to drive that change.”

Slated to become operational in time to support the 2020 wheat harvest, the facility has a planned storage capacity of 1 million bushels.
