Pillsbury History

The Communicator – Department of the Month, 1968


The Springfield Pillsbury plant was so much more than just flour milling.  The local company newsletter was known as The Communicator.  Over the course of several months in 1968, the newsletter had a section that highlighted each department (see attached document).  The descriptions are full of visuals and information about the plant.  Reading through each section gives us a broad understanding of how the plant functioned and what was produced 55 years ago.  It’s hard to believe just how many products the plant made and shipped throughout the world.
