The 6th IAOM Southeast Asia (SEA) District conference and expo brought more than 200 milling professionals from 23 countries to Jakarta, Indonesia, to network and learn more about the industry over the course of the three-day meeting.

The conference opened with a tour of the Sari-Roti bakery in Jakarta on the first day. Following the tour, a pre-conference workshop for around 80 participants was held. Dr. Jeff Gwirtz, technical advisor to IAOM and JAG Services CEO, led the half-day workshop on operations in the mill. The workshop covered a variety of topics from a closer look at specific milling equipment to the monitoring of mill performance. The workshop spent time reviewing mill capacity and flow sheet considerations, the importance of preventative maintenance, as well as comparisons of double versus single roll stands and lights-out versus automatic mills.

The second day of the conference started with welcome remarks by a representative of Indonesia’s manpower department. The technical presentations touched on energy and mill efficiency, automatic packaging, and challenges in feeding the world. The What’s New session included innovative ideas and designs by Alapala, Buhler, Ocrim and vibronet.

A table top expo featured 37 of the industry’s leading equipment manufacturers and service providers. Attendees had ample opportunity to meet with the exhibitors throughout the two-day expo to learn more about their products and services.

The final day of the conference started with a keynote address given by Franky Welirang, director, PT IndoFood Sukses Makmur Tbk. In his remarks, Welirang welcomed IAOM attendees to Indonesia, and provided an overview of the Indonesian wheat flour industry.

He said that he anticipates continued growth as the middle class increases and flour-based products become more common in the local diets.

The remaining educational programming featured presentations on noodle flour killing, the importance of dough rheology and flour functionality in quality control, yield value estimates for management decisions, updating rollermill technology, trends in turnkey flour milling construction, break roll corrugation, and extending the value chain of flour products.

IAOM Vice President Brad Allen, Ardent Mills, provided an overview of the US wheat milling market, noting that in the past 10 years, over 60% of mill ownership has changed hands in the United States.
