“We’re excited to partner with Scavuzzo’s to bring our artisan baking flours to even more food industry establishments in places like Chicago, San Antonio, Cincinnati, and everywhere in between,” said Tim Webster, Chairman and CEO of Farmer Direct Foods. “Our flours are made from high-quality Kansas wheat that is grown by multigenerational farmers, so this partnership is truly a celebration of Kansas agriculture.”
