December 20, 2014

Kuwait Flour Mills & Bakeries Company is the state-run flour monopoly in Kuwait, responsible for ensuring the supply of flour and other grains to the country. As Kuwait has no arable land, and little domestic food resources apart from fish, the country is entirely dependent on imports for its food needs. In this respect, Kuwait Flour Mills plays an essential role in the Kuwaiti economy. The company imports wheat and other grains, processed at the company's port and silo complex in Shuwaikh, and operates its own flour mills. Kuwait Flour Mills & Bakeries supplies flour and flour products to other bakers but also produces its own range of breads, including Arabic breads; European breads including white bread, hamburger and hot dog buns, and hard and soft rolls; and other baked goods, such as hard and soft cookies and crackers. The company also produces pasta, animal feed, and corn- and soy-based vegetable oils. Kuwait's operations are conducted at nine facilities located throughout Kuwait. The company also owns a minority stake in Bahrain Flour Mills. Kuwait Flour Mills & Bakeries remains controlled by the Kuwaiti government, and is led by Chairman Salah M. Al-Kulaib. The company's revenues in the middle of the first decade of the 2000s topped KWD 73 million ($250 million).
