Panhandle Milling announced this week that it is acquiring the Arrowhead Mills facility in Hereford, Texas. These new assets will serve to further-grow Panhandle Milling’s business via the expansion of capabilities, products and custom packaging solutions.
Panhandle Milling’s 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.
Panhandle Milling offers custom packaging as well as stand-up pouches, pillow pouches for cereals and beans and bag-in-a-box for mixes. A variety of certifications are also available, including BRC, GFSI, non-GMO, gluten free and kosher.
Another development and expansion currently in the works is PHM Safe’s ready-to-eat technology that will be an optional addition for all Panhandle Milling products offerings across all facilities.
“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,” Panhandle Milling president Peter Bisaccia said.
In addition to continuing to support the growth of its customers, PHM Brands said it is also proud to play 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,” Bisaccia said. “During these uncertain times, we’re in a unique position of growth, and it’s important that we actively work to pay it forward.”
The addition of the Hereford facility is 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.
