PADOVA, ITALY — Omas Industries is partnering with Allegiant Milling and Processing Solutions to develop projects in the milling sector in the Pacific region.

Customers in that region need to innovate their plants with machines designed to reduce energy waste and flour production costs, said Sid Jain, founder and director of Allegiant.

“The milling market in this area is mature, but profits are not always satisfying, for this reason there is a need for technologies that challenge traditional milling systems and provide core-solutions which are focused on sustainability, flexibility and provide resilience to the customers,” Jain said.  “Energy prices in Pacific are also very high and many milling plants are still using traditional milling methodologies, which requires high power. I strongly believe Omas’ innovative and groundbreaking solutions will benefit both small family-owned mills, and large corporate mills in efficient milling. Furthermore, there is strong focus by governments in our region to reduce CO2 emissions and meet Net Zero targets, and with this partnership, we can supply solutions which support this vision.”

Pietro Barbalarga, commercial director of Omas Industries, said the partnership will contribute to “enriching and expanding” its presence in the Pacific area.

“Consumers are increasingly attentive to the quality of the flours that arrive on their tables and producers are increasingly sensitive to the reduction of waste and CO2 emissions emitted into the environment,” Barbalarga said. “Omas responds to these needs thanks to products designed and developed according to the most innovative and recent technologies. We are confident that Sid is the right person to represent this philosophy.”

Omas, based in Padova, Italy, was founded in 1966. It develops high-tech flour milling machines and turnkey facilities.  

Allegiant, based in Queensland, Australia, provides turnkey project solutions for grain milling along with individual equipment sales and upgrades.
