Flour Milling Machinery Is An Important Investment For The Food Sector
Nutrition problem is one of the basic needs of people living in all developed or developing countries. As it was yesterday, more than half of the daily energy needed by our human body is obtained from grain products.

The most consumed product among cereals is wheat. Wheat flour is the main raw material of bakery products, pasta, biscuits and cakes, especially bread.

On the other hand, wheat and flour production is also an economic field of activity. The strategic importance of the flour industry, which many people do not realize in normal times, is better understood in times of crisis.

The food crisis in 2007 and the global economic crisis that started in 2008 once again showed the importance of the food industry. In this context, the flour industry has a special importance and meaning in terms of the country's economic value and food security.

At the same time, the flour industry is a source of employment and bread for thousands of people. Currently, 14 thousand people work in flour factories in Turkey. In a broader sense, when we consider wheat producers, bakers and those who serve the industry with their families, the flour industry directly and indirectly affects the lives of millions of people. Therefore, the Flour Milling Machinery industry is the backbone of Turkey's social and economic stability.

Flour Milling Machinery Is The Economic Value Of The Country
Humanity began producing wheat about ten thousand years ago. For this reason, the grinding profession, which is defined as the profession of making flour by grinding grain grains, is based on a long and deep-rooted historical past.

Archaeological excavations show that one of the earliest technological areas in which humanity developed was grinding.

Early humans grinded hard grains such as wheat and Egypt by beating them with carved stone mortars. Today's remains can be seen in the examples of mortar stones that can be seen in some of our villages today. Over time, forging was replaced by stone hand mills with a circular rotational motion.

Later, stone mills called Pompeii mills began to be used. The grinding power provided by turning wheels paved the way for the development of mills with this method.

As a matter of fact, human and animal power was used to make the stones rotate in order, and then wind and hydraulic (water) energy were used. It is known that one of the first water mills known in history was based on some rivers in Anatolia at the end of the 1st century BC.
