Antelope Wholesale Merchants Co. Ltd., trading as “Antelope Milling”, was one of the first milling companies to be established in Zambia in 1953 and subsequently registered in 1958. It started as a wholesale trading in foodstuffs, soaps, detergents, cereals and general grocery items. In 1985, the wholesale trading department was closed and the company concentrated in the milling of maize both for human and animal consumption. The milling operation grew through the years from 1 metric ton capacity to the present output capacity of 336 metric tons maize and 120 metric tons wheat per day.
