The “Old White Flour Mill” at Crediton served the needs of the neighbourhood, grinding flour for bread, and continued to do so until the development of sea-power brought in cheap wheat from abroad.
Large mills were then erected in our main ports and gradually the smaller country mills went into decline.
Some survive still as manufacturers of biscuit flour, some became derelict and others were converted into provender mills to serve the agricultural community.
In 1964 Crediton Milling was founded to supply animal feed to local farmers. The business expanded through the 1960/70’s until a major fire in 1988 saw the total destruction of the original mill building.
The commitment of loyal staff and customers for over twenty years instigated the positive decision to proceed with rebuilding and equipping a new mill.
