Soy white flakes and flour can be used by food manufacturers to increase the protein and moisture content of their final products without affecting taste, attributes not shared by wheat flour and other ingredients.
The facility is FoodChain ID and Non-GMO Project certified for non-GMO, and has built a seasoned non-GMO soybean grower base. ZFS Creston is well positioned to produce both non-GMO white flakes and soy flour.
ZFS Creston is served directly by a Class I railroad, and the company also owns a grain elevator near the processing plant. The elevator, currently being used for the non-GMO soybean program, includes several concrete silos, two receiving pits, a scale house and warehouse space.
In the mill, there are currently three flour mills, and the infrastructure of the mill was designed to be able to add a fourth mill, which would increase production capacity by 33 percent.
