Milling

Premier has a rich history in Milling right from the very beginning with the first flour mill being built in Port Elizabeth more than 130 years ago. Today, Premier has 5 wheat mills and 2 maize mills strategically located in South Africa and Swaziland to ensure optimal supply with a total capacity of 800 000 tons of wheat and 600 000 tons of maize per annum. Two of our wheat mills are designed to mill flour for speciality industrial customers. Our Kroonstad maize mill is the biggest maize mill for human consumption, housed under one roof, in the world. The South African-based mills are FSSC 22000 certified. Our bakeries are the biggest customer for our wheat mills and our flour brands include the iconic Snowflake brand which is more than 130 years old as well as Blue Ribbon flour. Our maize brands include: IWISA, Nyala, Invicta, Impala and Super Sun.

The milling operations also comprise of 14 warehouses strategically located around the country to optimise product availability and minimise unnecessary product handling which ultimately reduces costs not only for our milling products but also our confectionery and home & personal care products which are also distributed through this network. In 2014 Premier opened its new high volume warehouse & DC based at Long Meadow in Johannesburg.
