Five Star Flour Mills was established in 1995 as a joint venture between a group of Egyptian and foreign investors at Attaqa Industrial Zone overlooking the Gulf of Suez, 140 km east of Cairo
Five Star commissioned its first fully-computerized flour mill with production capacity of 450 tons/day in late 1998. An expansion in production capacity up to 1000 tons/day ensued by operation of the second milling line in 1999. In 2001, the third milling line started operation with a production capacity of 250 tons/day, making it the largest flour mill in Egypt with a gross daily production of 1250 tons/day. Buhler of Switzerland - the global leader in flour milling technology – installed the milling lines for the company and equipped them with the most advanced flour milling technology available. Ready-mixes and household flour can also be produced from a stand-alone mixing plant. Five Star offers 30 specialized and ready-mixed products.
Furthermore, Five Star owns a dedicated berth at Adabiya port in Suez, fitted with a grain unloader capable of processing 600 tons/hour from panamax size vessels and grain silos with storage capacity of 125,000 metric tons, which is also the largest in Egypt.
