ADM is pleased to recognize the extra efforts of the Spokane Milling team, whose hard work and dedication to sustainable agriculture resulted in their selection as the exclusive miller to bring Shepherd’s Grain flour to market.
Shepherd’s Grain products include a sustainably produced wheat variety that is milled by ADM into three different types of flours, which are sold in grocery stores and used in restaurants and bakeries. Both companies look to create a sustainable relationship between the grower, miller, baker and consumer so that all benefit from their partnership.
“’Think globally, act locally’ is a motto we work by,” said Shawn Lindhorst, commercial manager of the Spokane facility. “We understand that farmers are essential to our local communities—and to the global economy. We’re pleased to be working with an alliance of progressive family farms, demonstrating our commitment to the local community while making a difference in our world.”
The Spokane team’s selection by Shepherd’s Grain is just one example of their exemplary performance. The facility has also earned the Company’s most significant operational award for its commitment to co-workers’ safety and producing high-quality ADM products and services,
Congratulations to the Spokane Milling team for promoting positive stewardship of the environment and being selected as the exclusive partner of Shepherd’s Grain.
The Spokane mill facility was constructed in 1939 and has been operated by ADM for nearly 30 years. At the time of its construction, the mill was one of the most modern in the world and earned the Achievement “A” Award from the War Food Administration “Food for Freedom” program. Today, the 52 employees at the mill grind whole wheat, bran, germ and crushed wheat into flour that is distributed in bags and bulk to bakeries and retail stores in Washington, Oregon, Idaho and California.
