Construction work on a major flour mill in Oman, with a capacity of 500 tonnes per day, is scheduled to commence in September at a waterfront location within the Sohar Port and Freezone.

The project, envisioned as part of the Omani government’s national food security strategy, is being implemented by Sohar Flour Mills, a subsidiary of Oman Flour Mills (OFM), which is partly owned by the government, said the Oman Daily Observer report.

The mill is being built adjacent to a silo-based grain storage complex planned by the Public Authority for Strategic Food Reserves (PASFR), it said.

Chief executive officer of Oman Flour Mills Company Ali Habaj noted that a contract for the supply of milling equipment for the new flour mill at Sohar has been finalised.

The project is estimated to be completed by the end-2017, added the report.
