history of westmill
Established in 1988 and owned by Associated British Foods plc (ABF), Westmill Foods has grown to become one of the largest flour, rice, spices, sauces, edible oils, and noodles suppliers to the UK and European ethnic wholesaler market, food service, industrial sectors and the grocery multiples.
In 2005/2006 Westmill acquired BE International (Amoy, Rajah and Green Dragon) and Pride Oils PLC. These have been added to our Tolly Boy, Asli, Habib, Guru, and Lucky Boat brands. Westmill Foods has built up a strong brand portfolio which appeals to the Indian, Bangladeshi, Pakistani, Afro-Caribbean, African, and Chinese communities.
The brands are built on an expert knowledge of the flour, rice, spices, sauces, edible oils and noodles markets. As well as our traditional expertise in flour and rice production, we have developed specialist skills and capabilities in the production of value added lines, such as microwaveable pouched products, and wet and dry noodles.
Westmill Foods covers four major sites: rice milling and packing takes place in Selby, Yorkshire; canning of edible oils and packaging of other products takes place in Enfield, Middlesex; our value added products and noodles are produced in our purpose built facility at Trafford Park, Manchester; our European office is based in Rijswijk, Holland.
Our capabilities and knowledge mean we consistently produce the highest quality products for our brands, own label customers and contract pack and industrial customers.
