FLOUR millers Whitworth Bros Ltd has acquired the assets of independent miller Smiths Flour Mills, which includes mills in Holbeach, Langley Mill and Worksop.

Smiths is one of the largest independent flour millers in the UK. It employs around 130 staff across its three sites, and produces flour and cereal ingredients based on wheat, maize and rice.

Whitworths said its first priority was to ensure the continued supply of milled products to its customers.

It is believed all staff will transfer across to Whitworth Bros and the business will continue to trade as normal.
