Rogers Foods

Rogers Foods Ltd.

Rogers Foods has been proudly milling quality flour and cereal products from Canadian grain for over 60 years.  With mills in both Armstrong and Chilliwack, British Columbia, we produce wholesome cereals and highest quality flour and grain products for home and commercial bakers alike.

The popularity of Rogers natural foods is a reflection of the North American trend to better eating habits. More and more health professionals are stressing the importance of increased use of natural products, more fibre and fewer chemicals in family diets. The Company prides itself on its many natural, whole grain flour and cereal products produced without the use of food additives or GMOs.

Rogers Foods Ltd. produces and sells a variety of high quality “branded” and “private label” flour and cereal products for the grocery/retail, bakery/food, export and feed markets. Consumer products are distributed from the Rogers Foods plant throughout Western Canada and into Ontario. Industrial size bagged and bulk flour products are distributed throughout British Columbia and Alberta.

The Company is ideally located in that it can obtain grain from both British Columbia and Alberta farmers, as well as serve its two major market areas of British Columbia and Alberta.  While 85% of Rogers Foods Ltd. business is domestic, the continued growth of export sales to eight Pacific Rim countries ensures stability of sales of natural, nutritious, high-quality flour, cereal products and mixes.

Our employees and management are a motivated and eager team ready to accept the challenges of the future growth of customers, products and our mill. We encourage a continuous program of training as we position Rogers Foods Ltd. to meet international quality and sanitation standards to maintain our uniqueness and reputation. 

Rogers History

In the early 1950′s, Alfred J. Rogers, a farmer in the North Okanagan Valley of British Columbia, Canada, acquired a small stone milling device for the purpose of grinding grains for his own family’s use. Gradually his neighbors in the Okanagan Valley began coming to him for the same service. Eventually some of the local food stores asked that he grind local grains to produce natural, non-additive flours and cereals. Thus a hectic part-time milling business evolved for Alfred.

By 1971, Alfred Rogers was ready to retire from both farming and milling. He handed the reins over to his youngest son, Stan. Quick to realize the potential of supplying the public with natural whole grain products, Stan began an expansion program to have the sales of Rogers Foods Ltd. products grow from the Okanagan Valley across Western Canada and into Ontario.

In September, 1989, majority ownership of the Canadian company Rogers Foods Ltd. was acquired by Nisshin Flour Milling Co., Ltd. of Tokyo, Japan.  Since acquiring Rogers Foods, the Company has expended millions of dollars on capital modernization, expansion or improvements.  In addition, the labour force has grown, now totaling approximately 100 employees.  In its last fiscal year, Rogers contributed 3 million dollars in wages and benefits into the North Okanagan and Lower Mainland economies.

Today, Rogers Foods continues to be a well-financed company comprised of the following components:

a. a thoroughly modern flour mill,

b. a state-of-the-art, value-added mix facility,

c. a cereal production unit, and

d. bulk flour processing capabilities.
