Bullock thanks Japanese flour milling company for continued investments in Montana

Governor Steve Bullock today met with Hiroshi Sawada, Chairman and CEO of Nippon Flour Mills, to celebrate Montana and Japan's trade relationship and to thank Mr. Sawada for continued investments in Montana agriculture. Nippon, the 2nd largest flour milling company in Japan, is celebrating the 20th anniversary of Pasta Montana in Great Falls.

"Japanese consumers demand the highest quality food in the world, and Montana's producers have been proud to answer that call for generations," said Governor Bullock. "Pasta Montana is a great example of how we can process world-class grain into world-class food right here in Montana. We are grateful to Mr. Sawada and Nippon for their continued investments and faith in Montana's producers."
