Landmark rice mill shuts down
The landmark Riceland Foods mill, which had been in operation for 78 years, has closed its doors, blaming the move on a dwindling supply of domestic rice and an increase in global competition.

"We knew it was coming for the last few years," said manager A.B. Dore III. "The business just wasn't there."

The mill was opened in 1927 by A.B. Dore Sr. and operated continuously until a 1975 fire required the facility to be rebuilt. After 78 years and three generations of operation by the Dore family, the mill's last business day was Friday.

The mill was sold by the Dore family to Archer Daniels Midland in 1988 and to Riceland Foods in 2003.

Dore said only a skeleton crew remained at the mill, since most of the staff of 31 workers was laid off on March 23 after the mill stopped accepting new orders. At its height, the mill employed about 60, he said.
