USA – Panhandle Milling has acquired the Arrowhead Mills facility organic baking mixes, grains, cereals, and nut butters producer in Hereford, the first of a series of expansions to come in the near future that will continue to focus on serving retailers and customers in key areas of the country.
These new assets will serve to further-grow Panhandle Milling’s business via the expansion of capabilities, products, and custom packaging solutions.
according to the company, its new and current capabilities include extrusion, flaking, drying, enrobing, grinding, and roasting.
The expanded product portfolio boasts exciting new innovations like cereals, beans, whole grains, legumes, cereals and flakes, organic flours, stone-ground whole wheat, mixes and blends, and gluten-free specialty flours and grains.
“We are excited that with the Arrowhead Assets, Panhandle Milling will allow us to accommodate the rapidly-growing needs of both new and existing retail customers and serve to strengthen our partnerships in the flour space,”Peter Bisaccia – President, Panhandle Milling
“In the past six months, we’ve seen an enormous demand spike in the retail flour and mix spaces. We are excited that with the Arrowhead Assets, Panhandle Milling will allow us to accommodate the rapidly-growing needs of both new and existing retail customers and serve to strengthen our partnerships in the flour space,” said Panhandle Milling President, Peter Bisaccia.
In addition to continuing to support the growth of their customers, PHM Brands is also playing a role in maintaining and supporting the local Hereford workforce.
“Supporting West Texas and the people of West Texas through both jobs and wholesome, nourishing food has always been central to the values and the mission of our Panhandle Milling business. During these uncertain times we’re in a unique position of growth and it’s important that we actively work to pay it forward,” added Bisaccia
With this acquisition, Panhandle Milling is uniquely positioned going into the holiday season to support retailers up and down the baking aisle.
Panhandle is also in the process of developing and expanding its PHM Safe’s ready-to-eat technology that will be an optional addition for all Panhandle Milling products offerings across all facilities.
Panhandle Milling, along with Viobin and PHM Safe, are businesses of PHM Brands, a vertically integrated food, ingredient and technology manufacturer based in Denver, Colorado, US.
PHM was established in 2016 when three seasoned flour milling executives, Bisaccia, John Mason and Bryan Ledgerwood, joined forces with another investor, John Cure, to acquire a flour mill in Dawn, Texas, US. Over time, several other veteran milling executives joined their team, many of whom had been colleagues within the flour milling industry.
The Dawn flour mill business, purchased in 2016, was acquired from Richardson Milling. The buyers decided to restore the mill’s original name, Panhandle Milling Co.
