We are a company committed to families’ nourishment and well-being, a leader in the milling industry and with a successful trajectory of more than 110 years.

A history of pride and tradition

We are an Ecuadorian food company that has been contributing to the development of the country since 1909.

In 2008 we consolidated as Moderna Alimentos by merging Molino Electromoderno (Cajabamba), Panificadora Moderna (Quito) and Molinos del Ecuador (Guayaquil). In 2018 we positioned ourselves as leaders in the milling industry in Ecuador.

In response to market challenges and global trends, with a sustainable, high-quality approach, we produce and market wheat-based products and their derivatives to meet the needs of our customers and consumers.
