Industry professionals gain hands on experience in milling

Participants converge for milling training at Kansas State University's IGP Institute.

Since the late 1800s flour milling has served an important role in the Kansas economy. The increased demand globally for milled products has made education about the process crucial for a stable supply. The IGP Institute at Kansas State University and the International Association of Operative Millers teamed up to offer the IAOM-KSU Introduction to Flour Milling course August 13-17, 2018 at the IGP Institute.

This course is a combination of lectures taught by K–State staff, a visit to the Kansas Wheat Innovation Centre and hands-on training in the Hal Ross Flour Mill, Shellenberger Baking Lab and the Shellenberger Milling Lab.
