MISSION WOODS, Kan. (AP) _ A northeast Kansas-based flour milling company is being bought by a Tennessee milling group.
The Kansas City Star reports that Mission Woods-based Cereal Food Processors Inc. is being acquired by Milner Milling and Pendleton Flour Mills. The transaction would create the third-largest flour milling operation in the nation.
Milner Milling operates in the southeast and Pendleton in the Pacific northwest and Hawaii.
Cereal Food, which makes flour for restaurants and hotels, operates plants in Kansas City, Kan., Wichita and McPherson, Kan., and in five other states.
Terms of the sale were not disclosed. The purchase is expected to be completed this spring, pending regulatory clearances.
