This artwork features Kensington’s Allied Pinnacle Mills. The Mills site has been an operational flour mill since 1887. Allied Mills manufactures and distributes milling based products including flours for bread, cake, pastry, biscuits, noodle and culinary applications, premixes for bread, cakes and donuts and culinary and specialty meals, semolinas and brans.
The composition of the flour milling industry has changed drastically over the last century. In the 1870s there were 160 flour mills in Victoria which has now been reduced to three. Allied Mills owns and operates eight flour mills nationally, located in each Australian state. In Victoria, the sites are based in Kensington and Ballarat, with Kensington being one of the largest Australian sites and representing approximately one fifth of its total operations.
