Applications are sought for the positions of both a Chair of the Board of Directors and a Board Member of Laxey Glen Mills Limited. 

Laxey Glen Mills Limited is owned by the Isle of Man Government although managed by an independent board of directors. 

The company manufactures high quality flour from milling wheat grown by local farmers. Most of the output is sold to local bakeries for the production of bread and other baked products for local consumers. Flour is also sold to local retailers and there is a limited export market. The milling process also produces animal feed wheat, all of which is sold to local farmers.
