From the Field to Your Table with Rogers Foods
June 11, 2019
Rogers Foods has been providing Canadians with quality flours, oat blends and granolas for over 65 years. Today, with mills in Armstrong and Chilliwack, British Columbia, we produce wholesome cereal products including Porridge Oats and Granolas, plus the highest quality flour and grain products for commercial and home baking use.
In 1951, Alfred and Pauline Rogers set up a stone mill on their farm near Armstrong in central B.C., initially providing flour and cereal for their own family’s use. Soon, neighbours came to the Rogers’ mill for their flour and cereal needs and the Rogers’ reputation as a producer of wholesome, no-additive flour and cereal products grew.
From Canadian Farms to Rogers Foods Mills
From the beginning, Rogers Foods has prided itself on working directly with Canadian farmers to source the best quality ingredients grown in a country world renowned for its agricultural practices. The Company is ideally located to obtain grain from both British Columbia and Alberta farmers. While 85 per cent of Rogers Foods business is domestic, which includes both commercial (wholesale) and consumer (retail), the continued growth of export sales to eight Pacific Rim countries ensures stability of sales of natural, nutritious, high-quality flour, cereal products and mixes.

Rogers Foods Popularity in Your Home
The popularity of Rogers Foods is a reflection of two North American trends: i) to better understand where food comes from; and ii) to seek out all-natural flour and cereal products created without the use of food additives. Our Porridge Oats line, including Healthy Grains and Ancient Grains, has no added salt or added sugar and is incredibly versatile, from traditional oatmeal to delicious savoury recipes.
