Mennel said Summit Hill Foods will continue to produce commercial dry mix products through Jan. 1, 2024, at which time Mennel will transition the business to its manufacturing plants in Caledonia, Ohio, and Newton, NC.

“This acquisition creates an opportunity to further invest in our bakery mix production capabilities while diversifying our customer base,” said Ford Mennel, president, The Mennel Milling Co. “Growth in our bakery mix and foodservice facilities promotes companywide success — leading to opportunities in our grain, flour milling, and transportation divisions as well.”
