As one of the country's largest flour milling companies, Pilmico Foods Corporation has been providing Filipinos with world-class wheat flour and related products since 1962.
Making up its top-of-the-line flour brands are Sun Moon Star, Sunshine, Glowing Sun, Kutitap, Megastar, Gold Star and Wooden Spoon. Its line of high-grade feed ingredients includes Hard Swine Base Feeds, Soft Swine Base Feeds, Wheat Germ, and Pollard.
In 1995, Pilmico entered into a joint venture with the world’s premier yeast producer, Burns Philp Limited Mauri Fermentation of Australia, to form Pilmico-Mauri Foods Corporation selling world-class yeast and bakery ingredients under the Diamond, Mauripan and Baked Right brands. Later in 2004, Burns Philp sold its yeast division to ABF Overseas, a subsidiary of UK-based Associate British Food plc (ABF).
In November 2006, Pilmico sold its stake in Pilmico-Maurifoods to ABF Overseas Limited. The divestment of the yeast business was in line with Pilmico's continuing efforts to concentrate on its growing flour milling business.
Pilmico puts a premium on efficiency. It has invested heavily in state-of-the-art computerized milling equipment and controls giving its operators better control of the milling process from wheat receiving up to flour packing and palletizing. With a tradition of continual improvement both in operations and product development, Pilmico continues to work in providing its customers with excellent products, reliable service and technical expertise.
Meanwhile, the Pilmico milling plant has undergone three expansions in the past 17 years. An additional mill was installed in 1989 and the most recent was installed in 1997. With the rehabilitation of the original mill in 2000 and an expansion in 2005, it is considered to be the most modern flour mill in the Philippines today. The plant boasts of a total milling capacity of 1,300 MT/day.
Furthermore, in April 1997, Pilmico took on a joint venture with Purina Mills, Inc. and Tyson Foods, Inc. in feed and swine production under a company called Fil-Am Foods, Inc. Commercially known as PMI Nutrition, the Fil-Am Foods feed milling plant lies on a 22 hectare lot in Capas, Tarlac. It was inaugurated in August 1998, with 5,000 live hogs flown in from the United States within the next few months. January 1999 saw the start of commercial operation of the feed mill, and in July the commercial operation of the swine division followed. Pilmico eventually bought out its partners in late 2002, taking full control of Fil-Am Foods.
Presently, Pilmico Foods Corporation holds its main office in Cebu City while a satellite office is maintained at Makati City.
