  1. And since they acquired Hodgson Mill, all of their products have been sold out and removed from all store shelves. The only allergy free flour, now vanished! My baking busines is shot!

  2. Desperate for Hodgson Mill buckwheat pancake flour, in quantity, I use it for large community breakfasts serving 300-500 people…

  3. Have been using various Hodgson Mill products, but especially the whole wheat bran muffin mix. Will they ever be back?

  4. Still looking for Hodgson Mill oat bran cereal, which disappeared from the shelves of my supermarket and has yet to reappear nearly a year later despite claims that it will soon. Any chance we will see it again?

  5. When will Hodgson Mills rye flour be available again? I’ve used and relied on it for over 30 years. It’s the best rye flour around.


  6. I’m looking for the bread machine mixes formerly distributed by Hodgsons MIlls.
    Do you carry them or do you carry the equivalent?
