Prima Singapore HQ
Prima’s flour milling commenced in 1961 with the construction of its Singapore flour mill. With the commencement of operations in 1963, Prima grew steadily over the years to become an industrial group with international recognition. Its inauguration was a historical turning point for Singapore and the region, heralding the beginning of locally-milled wheat flour replacing imported flour. Over nearly six decades, the Group evolved into an international food company with manufacturing hubs in Singapore, Sri Lanka, China and Australia.
