On a Mission to
Create a Better
Food System

This relentless pursuit of better has spanned five generations of family ownership and continues to evolve as our food system—and the way we eat—changes.

Founder’s Statement

“As for our general policy, we are firm believers that there is always room at the top, that there is always room for a gilt-edged article. Our chances of success are vastly increased if we produce a grade of flour that few, if any, competitors can match. It is usually slow work to introduce a fine article of this character for the reason that it costs more to produce it than to produce an inferior or commonplace article. But once secure an opening, and its merit is recognized, you hold your trade very much closer than your competitors do.” – Bernard J. Rothwell I

Our Core Values

We recognize that the universe of plant-based foods is constantly changing and responding to consumers’ desire for variety, healthfulness, great taste and affordability in their food choices.

Our goal is to stay a step ahead of our customers’ needs, while always maintaining the trust they have placed in us for generations.

Our Leadership Team

Core to our mission are the people who bring unrivaled industry expertise and perspective to ensure our ingredients live up to Bay State Milling’s unsurpassed standards – and exceed our customers’ expectations.
