About

We have years of flour trade experience, since 1867

When George Reynolds Wright came to Ponders End Mills in 1867, he established a simple business principle - products which were to bear his name would be made with only the finest ingredients, using the most modern techniques. Four generations later, this principle is still being followed by the firm's current Chairman, his great, great grandson David Wright.

 

 

Innovation

The transformation of Ponders End Mills into a modern food factory began in 1963 when Bill's son, Kenneth Wright, became Managing Director. Over three decades, he and his team introduced numerous improvements and innovations which have continued under Ken's son, David, who joined the company in 1982.

All of our most recent achievements would mean little to our founder. However, there is one measure of the firm's progress which he would readily understand. The production of 1,000 tonnes of flour represented almost a whole year's output in 1867. Today, we can manufacture this amount of finest-quality flour in less than a week.
