Grain Millers, Inc. to Acquire ENRECO, Inc.

Date Posted: June 19, 2012

Grain Millers, Inc. is pleased to announce that it has reached a definitive agreement to acquire the milling business of ENRECO, Inc., one of North America’s premiere suppliers of conventional and organic flaxseed products to the food and nutritional products industries.

ENRECO, based in Newton, Wisconsin, supplies high quality flaxseed products processed through a unique proprietary stabilization method that provides a validated 5-log kill step.

The Company was founded in 1987 as part of Natural Ovens and has been owned and operated since 2004 by Mr. Sean Moriarty.

Mr. Moriarty will retain ownership of Omega Fields—the retail brand of ENRECO focused on the equine, canine, livestock, poultry and human nutrition marketplace.

“This is an ideal acquisition for Grain Millers.

"Food safety has always been one of our top strategic priorities and the opportunity to offer our customers a product that has widely-recognized health benefits and a validated kill step was one that we couldn’t pass up,” said Mr. Steve Eilertson, President of Grain Millers.

“We’ve worked with ENRECO for years as a customer and supplier and have first-hand knowledge of the strength of this business.

"We are thrilled to welcome ENRECO’s employees to the Grain Millers team and look forward to building on ENRECO’s existing successes.”

Grain Millers, Inc., headquartered in Eden Prairie, Minnesota, is a leading international agri-business with diversified interests in the processing and merchandising of conventional and organic whole grains.

Grain Millers operates out of eight locations in four countries and employs over 600 uniquely talented people committed to providing the safest and highest quality food products and the best possible customer service and value to its customers.
