Farm to Flour
The most superior wheat from Rajasthan, M.P., and Maharashtra is purchased by SSRFM after a series of lab tests examining parameters such as Gluten content, Moisture Protein, Sedimentation Value, Hectoliter Weight, Ash & Sieve tests, and more. The wheat then goes through a comprehensive three-stage cleaning process which is then mixed in its unique blend and conditioned for about 36 hours and more. The cleaned wheat is taken to the Milling section with the help of pneumatic lifts where it is ground, sieved, and graded into Maida, Rawa, Atta & Bran with the help of state-of-the-art machinery. The whole process is repeated multiple times and each time passes through a series of high-powered magnets and sieves to maintain consistency and assured quality. The entire process is automated to mitigate any leakages by way of human intervention. At various stages of the production process, the products are tested in the lab before the finished product is thoroughly examined once again and delivered to the clientele.
