Each week, our Proud to Manufacture in Michigan team picks from more than 1,000 member companies to name a Featured Manufacturer of the Week. Our latest winner is Chelsea Milling Company!

Featured Manufacturer of the Week


Chelsea Milling Company has been family-owned since it was first established as a traditional flour mill in Chelsea, Mich., in 1901. From there, the company began making prepared “JIFFY” Mix baking products to provide affordable, better tasting food to people as they recovered from the Great Depression. Now offering 14 varieties of baking mixes, including corn muffin, fudge brownie, pancake and biscuit, Chelsea Milling Company has grown to become the market share leader in retail prepared muffin mixes.

In addition to providing retail products, Chelsea Milling Company also produces mixes for the food service, hospitality and institutional markets, including K-12, healthcare, senior living and corrections. While the company has experienced new products, technological advancements and growth throughout the years, their goal has remained the same: to feed America, especially during difficult economic times.

Due to their historic beginnings and ongoing commitment to service, Chelsea Milling Company has been chosen as Proud to Manufacture in Michigan’s latest Featured Manufacturer of the Week!
