Flour milling: a family tradition since 1825

Flour milling is a family tradition in our company, a passion that has been passed down from generation to generation for almost two centuries. We grind selected wheat into flour worthy of the best breads which will make the bakers proud and leave customers satisfied. Our millers work in accordance with demanding specifications which guarantee our clients systematically controlled flour of consistent quality. Under the impulse of Bernard Bourseau, the mill has been constantly overhauled to take account of technical developments vital in the search for efficiency and food safety. This very same passion is what drives us every day at our mill, Moulin de La Villatte. And it's no accident that we're still independent today!

3 WORK TOOLS:
TWO ROLLER MILLS AND ONE STONE GRINDER MILL

A modern mill at the NOZAY site is used to produce conventional and CRC flours like the Red Label BAGATELLE flour.
The roller mill at St-Omer de Blain is used for organic production. This is where wheat, rye and spelt flours are made.
Lastly, and because we wish to perpetuate the traditional values of flour milling, we have built an authentic stone grinder mill at the Nozay site. Cereals are thus gently ground without being heated to preserve flavour and aromas.
Using this tool, the mill flours L'Avant CRC and L'Avant Bio and buckwheat flours are produced.

THE TEST BAKERY: A LABORATORY OF IDEAS AND INNOVATIONS

Near our roller mill and grinder mill, we have built a test bakery.
As well equipped as our artisan clients, we test all of our flours here in the same conditions as those of an artisan baker.
Our trainers and bakers work on product improvement, rationalisation of work methods to increase bakery productivity and quality of bread and pastries. From an initial audit to monitoring in your bakery and outlet, Minoterie Bourseau will guide you with a view to continuous improvement.
We then consult with you and set objectives to be reached and define a plan of action to be implemented to ensure your success.
