The major agriculture production area of Nepal is located in the Terai, or lowlands (the narrow strip of land bordering India). Because of this, most of the country’s mills and processing facilities are also located in this region. There are limited numbers of mills outside of this region, however. Nepal has over 200 commercial mills, collectively having a wide range of output capacity. Some mills have a capacity of up to 200 – 400 mt per day. The most common products processed by the mills are wheat, rice, pulses and vegetable oil. There are a number of large-scale mills that are familiar with the standards and specifications of specialized blended foods typically used by the humanitarian community. The four major mills and processing facilities used and recommended by WFP are listed below. A partial listing of other mills both small and large from across Nepal is also provided. The national milling association, the Nepal Flour Mills Association, is located in Kathmandu.
