Molinos de Puerto Rico, the Caribbean arm of Ardent Mills’, the flour-milling and ingredient company, was honored in June with the “Manufacturing Company of the Year” award from the Puerto Rico Chamber of Food Marketing, Industry and Distribution (known as MIDA by its Spanish acronym.)

“We see this award as a reflection of our commitment to provide only the best and top-quality products to our customers and consumers,” said Jon Stuewe, president of Molinos de Puerto Rico.

“Any time we are recognized by the community, it carries a special meaning about how we contributed to its overall health, growth and success. Being specifically recognized by MIDA is an honor for Molinos and our team members. Our people are the key to our success,” he said.

“For generations, Amapola has been a trusted brand. When people see the Amapola logo, it triggers their childhood memories and the way mom used to cook. Each day, we continue to work to earn this trust,” he added.

Later this year, Molinos de Puerto Rico will be hosting two major milling events: the Latin-American Association of Milling Industries’ 2016 annual meeting and the Caribbean Millers Association convention.
