RC Mission Mill is a wheat mill that was founded and built by Father Fages and Brother Henry in 1915. Father Fages and Brother Henry were part of the Roman Catholic Mission in Keimoes, Northern Cape, and they established the Mill as a source of much needed income.
A wheat mill was already in demand in the area as early as 1904, but one could not be built without the permission of the Government. At the time of the establishment of RC Mission Mill in 1915 only one other wheat mill was in operation in the area and that was in Rooikopeiland (Keimoes). Brother Henry knew little about machinery but with encouragement and a loan from Bishop Simon he overcame the obstacles encountered and the Mill was built. Others were inspired by Brother Henry’s success and four other wheat mills were erected in the area during the early 1920’s.
According to an earlier Town Clerk of Keimoes, Mr. Van den Heever, RC Mission Mill was regarded as a modern wheat mill even as early as 1958. Since its humble beginnings in 1915, RC Mission Mill has been expanded and modernised. During July 1994, the business of the Mill was expanded to include the sale of fast moving consumer goods (FMCG). During December 2006, we joined the OK Franchise Division, a Division of Shoprite Checkers (Pty) Ltd. and we therefore also trade under the name of KEIMOES.
By joining the OK Franchise Division it allowed us to extensively expand our FMCG product range which includes food, home care, personal care, health care as well as baby products and baby food.
