Bungasari Flour Mills Indonesia (BFMI) has officially opened the new flour milling facilities in Medan, Sumatera Utara, and Makassar, South Sulawesi, on Wednesday, 16 February 2020. The opening ceremony of the new facilities was held using the theme “Bungasari Horas-Ewako” where the shareholders and the board of directors from Indonesia, Japan, and Malaysia, together with their distributors and partners, attended the ceremony virtually.
With a total investment of 90 million USD on an 8.1 ha land area, BFMI proves its commitment to continuously expanding its production capacity to keep up with the ever-growing customer demand. President Director Bungasari Flour Mills Indonesia, Budianto Wijaya, also explained that one of the main purposes of developing both facilities is to ensure the continuous supply across Indonesia for good quality and affordable flour products.
The new facilities will enable more efficient supply chains to supply customers in North Sumatera and East Indonesia, where not many flour producers can serve large capacity demand in the region. With the passion and determination to continue reaching the customers all over Indonesia, both flour mills’ facilities equipped with the latest technology and machinery in the wheat processing system were ready to operate near the closing year of 2020.
