21st Century Food and Packaging Limited is MeTL Group’s wheat and maize milling factory; established in 2005 when the group took over National Milling Corporation Ltd., commissioned in 1990, the original mill had a total wheat milling installed capacity of 240 metric tons per day.
In 2011, 21st Century Food and Packaging renovated the mill, furnishing it with the latest technology, upgrading the wheat cleaning and tempering operations, and investing in a modernised caroused packing system.
Over 500 people work at 21st Century Food and Packaging Limited. The factory has a total wheat milling capacity of 1,250 metric tons per day and a maize milling capacity of 300 metric tons per day. Wheat and maize flour from the factory are distributed locally and account for over 25% of the local market share. 95% of the mill’s byproducts — maize bran, wheat bran, and wheat pollard — are currently exported to international markets, specifically in the Middle East, where they are used for animal feed.
MeTL Group’s wheat and maize flour brands, Mo Safi, Mo Poa, and Mo Maisha, are packaged in various sizes according to customer needs. They are supplied countrywide through its reliable and efficient distribution channels.
