Milling Group Buying Kansas City Food Processor

Cereal Food Processors Inc., the nation’s largest independent flour-milling company, has agreed to be acquired by a Tennessee-based milling group.

Cereal Food operates plants in Kansas City, Kan., Wichita and McPherson, Kan., as well as in five other states. The company founded in 1972 by Fred L. Merrill makes flour for restaurants and hotels, high-gluten and whole wheat flour, as well as flour for cookies, cakes and tortillas.

The purchase by Milner Milling and Pendleton Flour Mills, expected to be complete this spring, pending regulatory clearances, would create the third-largest flour-milling operation in the nation.
