Floods close two Ardent flour mills

Reuters — Two Illinois flour mills near the Mississippi River and operated by Ardent Mills were shuttered because of flooding this week, the company told Reuters on Wednesday.

Ardent, the largest U.S. flour miller, operated jointly by Cargill, ConAgra Foods and CHS Inc., said the mills in Chester and Alton will remain closed “until the waters recede,” a company spokeswoman said in a statement.

The plants were shuttered Tuesday morning.
