The history of the flour business is an integral part of the history of the company “Kauno Grūdai”. The mills of “Kauno Grūdai” make flour for more than 120 years. In 1887, while executing the decree of the Russian Czar Alexander II, the building works of the mill were commenced and completed in 1980.
We consider this business the most mature business among others, which makes us leaders, represents quality, experience and traditions. The flour business is a strong and successful base of our company, on the grounds of which the company developed and expanded its operation, and currently even became a member of one of the economically strongest group of companies, the “KG Group”.
After activities of the company were divided into separate types of business in 2010, the Flour and Flour Products Business became an autonomous business. The Manager of this business is Raimundas Neifaltas.
