Item# 4710

Flour Mills of America was incorporated in Maryland in April of 1926 to acquire the properties and assets of the Kansas Flour Mills Company (the owners of the Cereals Company), as well as the properties, trademarks, brands and assets of the Vaher & Spies Milling Company. The two companies combined owned fifteen mills in Kansas, Missouri, Oklahoma, Illinois, Minnesota and Wisconsin.

With the acquisitions, the Flour Mills of America became the fourth largest milling concern in the United States, and the largest producer of hard winter wheat flour in the world. Among the brands acquired were, “Made Rite,” “Honey Bee,” “Big 7,” “Enterprise” and “Dainty.” Some of the company’s existing brands were “Sleepy Chief,” “Sleepy Scout” and “Sleepy Brave.”
