Our Functions

Our Operations function is the heart of our business, employing more than 2,000 team members in our 40 different mills, three mixing facilities and specialty bakery. Together, they are responsible for producing the industry’s broadest range of flours, mixes, blends and specialty products – and their work touches the lives of 100 million people every day. 

Our team works to find ways to make the milling process even more efficient, to keep plants running in the face of equipment failures, hurricanes and floods, making sure every team member gets home safe and produces a safe product. These are just some of the things our Operations team are responsible for. With their deep roots in communities across North America, they also help us strengthen our connections with the people we serve.

Investing in Sustainability at Streetsville

Watch how our Streetsville facility and team members play an active role in helping the Ministry of Natural Resources and Fishery (MNRF) protect the Credit River and the spawning salmon every fall.

“Every day I get to make decisions on adjustments that need to be made on equipment.  I set priorities as to what will be worked on during a repair cycle.  I get to interact with people and encourage them.  I also get to solve problems with my team.”

Larry Stallbaumer - Head Miller
Boys and Girls Club

See how the Decatur mill team supports the Boys and Girls Club of North Central Alabama. We continually support the communities where we live and work by donating products, volunteering time and talent, and supporting local businesses.

“I think that people may be surprised at the amount of fun and laughs that we have together at the plant and with our peers across the other facilities. There is a lot of hard work that goes into running these plants, but we get in a few laughs, even on the tough days.”

Sean Gager - Plant Manager

The Legend: Leif Johnson

Meet Leif Johnson, maintenance team member in Mt. Pocono. Leif’s patience, willingness to put others first, and his inexhaustible work ethic have inspired us for years. Leif has a heart of gold, or a heart of grain, as we like to say.

“When I first joined Ardent Mills, I was new to food and flour production.  I wanted to learn everything I could, and the team was ready to teach. As a result, I have received more responsibility and ownership of my job”
