 Richardson International Limited has expanded its oat milling business with the acquisition of European Oat Millers.

 Curt Vossen, President and CEO of Richardson International commented, “We are excited to build on our success in value-added processing and extend our food manufacturing footprint to a new geography. As the largest oat miller in North America, we now look forward to building a presence in Europe to enhance our ability to compete in the global marketplace.”

 Based in Bedford, England, European Oat Millers is a leader in the oat milling business. It is the second largest oat miller in Europe, producing a wide range of oat products, including various oat flakes, flour and groats, as well as wheat and barley flakes and extruded ingredients and products. Products are sold throughout the U.K., with exports to continental Europe, Africa, the Middle East and Asia. 

 Vossen continues, “European Oat Millers is a solid, family-owned business that is well-established in the U.K. We have been very impressed with both the quality of the business and its people and believe it is an excellent complement to our Richardson Milling division. Looking ahead, we will build on the investments that have already been made, including increasing manufacturing capacity, and will continue to seek opportunities to expand our global business.”

 Bill Jordan, who co-founded European Oat Millers with his brother David remarked, “My brother and I are very proud of the business that we have successfully grown over the past three decades. We are pleased to be passing it on to a similar family-owned business that shares both our vision for growth and our core values and we look forward to watching the business evolve.” 

 Richardson first entered the oat milling business in 2013 with the acquisition of three oat processing plants in Canada - Portage la Prairie, Manitoba; Martensville, Saskatchewan; Barrhead, Alberta – and one in the US in South Sioux City, Nebraska. 


 Today, Richardson is the largest oat miller in North America.
