A fifth-generation family business
Simpsons Malt was founded in 1862 by James Parker Simpson in Alnwick, Northumberland.
More than 160 years on, it remains a family business - now led by the fifth generation of the Simpson family.
The sense of family is a theme throughout the company, with a number of colleagues at our sites having worked with us for two, three and even four decades - many doing so alongside members of their own families. This, we feel, is a vital part of our identity and success.
Our independence and ethos allows us to invest where necessary to sustainably grow our family business for future generations, all while remaining the malt supplier of choice for some of the most innovative and successful brands on the market.
