Serendib Flour Mills (SFML) recently introduced its new and improved 7 Star bakers flour formula to the Sri Lankan market.
Produced using state-of-the-art technology, 7 Star’s reformulated bakers flour now offers the local bakers a superior flour with higher oven spring and bigger yields. As a result, Sri Lankan consumers will be able to trial quality and healthier bread.
The use of higher grade of Canadian wheat enables the flour to absorb more water, which in turn enables giving higher oven spring, higher volume and better appearance of bread products.
Additionally, the introduction of the latest machinery from Buhler Switzerland ensures bakers flour is fresh and packaged in its purest state. The higher levels of water absorption also ensure that more loaves of bread can be baked.
Through the use of the latest machinery and an array of stringent quality control processes, 7 Star’s new bakers flour has been upgraded to meet the highest global standards of production and innovation. Prior to being released locally, the reformulated bakers flour was also tested vigorously both internally at the Serendib Flour Mills facility as well as at different bakeries by teams of expert bakers. The feedbacks from all these trials have been overwhelming.
Commenting on the new 7 Star bakers flour, All Ceylon Bakery Owners’ Association President N.K. Jayawardane stated, “We are delighted to hear about the new formulation of 7 Star new bakers flour. The trials conducted with the new bakers flour have given us excellent results. I sincerely believe this new product by Serendib Flour Mills will help the bakery industry to improve the overall quality of its bakery products and will be a bonus to the Sri Lankan consumers.”
Commenting on the company’s latest product upgrade, Serendib Flour Mills Marketing and Communication Head Kalinga Wijesekera stated, “Serendib Flour Mills has always been dedicated to nourishing the nation and we have continuously strived towards ensuring that the highest quality of flour products are made available islandwide.
