There's a reason our logo says "premium quality". It applies to the ingredients we use, the products we make, how we make them, and the standards we apply at every step.
We choose premium wheat, oats, rye, corn, of the highest grade, from the U.S.A. We clean it twice before grinding, removing the chaff and broken kernels. Only the plumpest, ripest grain berries make it through.
We mill with premium methods. The way Hodgson Mill grinds grains today is not much different from how Alva Hodgson did it 1882. We mill the grains gently and carefully between two millstones, cut and shaped from genuine North Carolina red granite. When one pound of grains enters the stones, one pound of flour or meal comes out.
This premium milling process, which remains cooler than other methods, ensures that the grain's nutritious germ, bran and natural oils are fully preserved.
We stand behind all of our products, and if for any reason you are not satisfied, we will make it right. Contact us to tell us how we can improve, and our Customer Service team will be happy to replace the product or cover your purchase price.
Hodgson Mill is Certified for Food Safety by BRC
Most people hear the word “auditor” and run away, but we welcome food safety auditors into our manufacturing facility every year because we’re serious about quality and safety. These food safety professionals check our plant from top to bottom, and quiz our employees on best practices. Questions might focus on safe allergen handling, safety equipment like metal detectors, and policies that help ensure the best quality food, like testing ingredients and blends before they go out to consumers like you.
Achieving “Grade AA” requires a real commitment to safety throughout the organization, and stellar training for all levels of employees. We’re glad to strive for this standard, so our customers can feel at ease knowing that Hodgson Mill products are the safest and highest quality on the market.
BRC stands for British Retail Consortium, a leading global safety and quality certification program. BRC is recognized by the Global Food Safety Initiative (GFSI), an organization that sets global standards for food safety.
We pride ourselves on third-party certifications. We believe these standards help our customers, since you don't have to take our word on our quality -- we have invited experts doublecheck our processes and make sure that we're doing things right.
Hodgson Mill products are certified by the National Celiac Association, and tested in a third party lab to ensure that our products contain no more than 5 ppm (parts per million) gluten - even lower than the FDA standard of 20 ppm!
A gluten free diet is the only doctor-approved treatment for celiac disease, an autoimmune disorder of digestion which affects about 1 in 100 people of all ages and makes it impossible for them to digest gluten. Gluten is a protein found in certain grains, including strains of wheat, barley, and rye. Even more people have wheat or gluten allergies or sensitivities and feel better when they avoid gluten in their diet.
Hodgson Mill has always relied on renewable energy - the original mill was water-powered, after all! Today, Hodgson Mill's production facility has state-of-the-art solar arrays and wind turbines to help provide electricity for our manufacturing plant. View a live dashboard of solar and wind power generated at our facility here.
Hodgson Mill has a sophisticated recycling program, in which 99% of materials brought into our facility are recycled! We also use Certified Recycled Paperboard for many of our products - and paperboard can be recycled again and again.
Bob Goldstein, Hodgson Mill President, says: “Our investment in renewable energy and recycling is just the right thing to do. We hope other manufacturers follow suit. If we all do a little bit, just think of the positive impact we could have on our environment. Our customers can always feel good about buying our high quality, wholesome products. We want them to feel great about the way we produce them too.”
