The quality assurance teams at four Bay State Milling Co. mills have been recognized with the AACC International Analytical Accuracy Award for 2014. The facilities in Winona, MN; Mooresville, NC; Indiantown, FL; and Platteville, CO were given awards by the nonprofit organization comprises of specialists in the use of cereal grains in foods.
