Heralding a New Era in Brazilian Wheat Milling

Bunge’s new wheat mill in Rio de Janeiro, or Moinho Fluminense as it is known in Brazil, strengthens and consolidates our leading market position in the country. Moinho Fluminense is one of the four largest mills in Latin America, all of which are operated by Bunge.

The mill has a production capacity of more than 600,000 metric tons a year, 50 percent more than Bunge’s former facility. Cutting edge technology is used in every aspect of the mill’s operations, including raw materials receipt, grain classification and processing, and equipment monitoring and control.

Bunge now has seven mills in Brazil, strategically located from north to south, giving Bunge a highly efficient national footprint.
