ISTANBUL, TURKEY — Alapala completed in January a third turn-key flour mill in Morocco.

Flour Mills, a family-owned business, is a longtime business partner with Alapala. It has a wheat processing capacity of 900 tonnes in two locations. The new mill is located near Flour Mills existing plant in the El Jadida region.

The new plant has a capacity of 300 tonnes per day, processing local semi-hard wheat and bakery flour mainly for domestic consumption.

The mill is installed in a completely new six-floor concrete building, which also is designed and constructed in conformity with high sanitation standards.

The mill is equipped with the latest Alapala technology consisting of Similago II roller mills (DAVG), Quadro Plansifters with larger sieve boxes (GPAK) and control sifters (RKEM). An optical sorter also is used in the plant for very fine cleaning of wheat before milling, to ensure the highest level of food safety is achieved.

The plant operates with an advanced automation system that allows the centralized monitoring and management of the complete cleaning, milling and packaging processes. The system enables generating detailed production reports, with also real-time error diagnosis and long-distance connection functions.
