BISMARCK (AP) — North Dakota’s state flour mill is planning an expansion this spring.
Mill manager Vance Taylor said the project will increase the mill’s flour-making capacity from 9,000 to 10,000 hundredweight per day.
Taylor said it’s needed to handle an expected increase in flour demand later this year.
North Dakota’s Industrial Commission will review the proposal. Taylor said he’s soliciting bids from contractors for the project. He said it will cost about $1 million, and it should be finished by September.
Last week the mill reported a record profit of almost $6.3 million from July through December — the first six months of its budget year.
