Seaboard builds new mill in Zambia
Greenfield facility in Lusaka nearly triples its daily flour production capacity.
Seaboard’s subsidiary, National Milling Corporation, in October began operations at a new flour mill near Lusaka, Zambia. Photos courtesy of Seaboard.
The new mill was a greenfield project constructed on 25 acres of land, replacing an old mill located in the heart of Lusaka.
The mill includes six wheat bins, manufactured by Global Industries, with a total of 27,000 tonnes of storage capacity.
In addition to the flour mill and storage bins, the complex includes a warehouse, an administration building, and a staff cantina as well as space to eventually build a feed mill and install more grain storage silos.
Bühler was the main supplier of milling equipment, including Diorit MDDY double and single rollstands.
Bühler Arenit sifters were installed in the 5,300-square-meter, five-story facility.
The cleaning house features a Bühler classifier separator.
National Milling Corporation Managing Director David Bosse said daily flour production capacity at the new mill is 600 tonnes, nearly three times greater than the old facility.
