Cost Required to Setup a Wheat Flour Mill Plant

How much will it cost to set up a wheat flour mill plant ? As we know, the total cost of establishing a wheat flour processing plant will be determined by many factors, including raw materials,  equipment cost,land costs and labor costs, and so on.Therefore, the exact cost of setting up a wheat flour processing plant will vary with different requirements and specific circumstances.

  • Cost of Raw materials

The most important raw material for wheat flour production is wheat. The cost of this commodity may vary depending on various factors. For instance, the quantity demanded and the type and value of wheat can make the costs vary greatly. Moreover, locally or internationally outsourced wheat can vary in prices. Therefore, the most important thing is to determine the needs of the plant in terms of the factors before determining the exact values. Some of the other things that can make the prices vary are oil and gold prices, currency exchange rates, and weather conditions. Depending on the quality of wheat, the prices can range from $250 to $300 or even above per unit. (Related post: How to Start Flour Mill Business >>)

There are many kinds of equipment and material required in setting up a commercial flour mill. This may include building structures to house the mill machinery. The most important equipment is the flour milling machinery. The cost of this equipment may be determined by the milling capacity.

  • Land Costs

Land is an appreciating commodity. The cost of land just like the labor costs may depend on various factors. For instance, land in the towns and cities are more expensive compared to that in the rural areas. For instance, the Amazon bought land worth $4,300 per acre in a non-developed area. However, land can cost $196,400 per acre or more in some areas in the US. In addition to this, the cost may be so huge if the flour mill factory design intends to sit on a huge piece of land.

  • Labor Costs

Just like the raw materials, the size of the plant and the production capacity can influence the labor costs. The plant requires both skilled and unskilled labor. Skilled labor is costly because paying a professional and skilled technician is not a joke. However, the costs of unskilled labor may be equally huge because these staff may take the majority of the workers. The rates of payment vary from one country to the other. Depending on the production capacity of the wheat flour plant, the costs may be even up to one third of the targeted revenue before tax. The most important thing is to know the number and caliber of staff required for the wheat flour mill plant to achieve its set goals and objectives.

Wheat flour processing technology

  • Escreening by vibrating screen

Filter out the impurities in the wheat, moldy wheat, and rotten wheat.


  • Water spray cleaning

On the one hand, it is to adjust the moisture and hardness of each part of the wheat grain, which is beneficial to the later peeling, so that the flour can be ground layer by layer, and on the other hand, it is also to ensure the cleanliness of the grain.


  • Transport wheat

The conveyor belt carries the wheat up, and the tube made of white iron is sucked up in a vacuum.


  • Grind the surface

The mechanical equipment can be ground up and down for continuous processing. In this way, flour can be produced. 

  • Screening

The milled mixed meal falls into the sieving structure to distinguish flour and wheat bran while extracting germ.
