The total capacity of the Bahraini Flour Mills Company, Bahrain’s sole flour supplier, currently totals 420 tons per day, reported Al-Sharq Al-Awsat. In 1999, the company succeeded in turning around its BD 687,700 operating losses to a BD 1 million operating income.
The company is expected to accomplish two feasibility studies regarding the establishment of two new factories at the beginning of next October. Sources have revealed that the company is planning to set up a pasta manufacturing factory with BD 1 million investments and a biscuit producing company with BD 500,00 investments. The company’s board of directors will decide whether or not to launch these plants following the evaluation of these studies’ results. –(Albawaba-MEBG)
