From seed to bottle
For malting barley, we can offer traceability from seed to bottle thanks to our vertically integrated supply chain.
Following the supply of the malting barley seed and other farm inputs, our grain trading team purchase the barley back on prearranged contracts – many of them long-term.
Then, with our large haulage operation, we collect the barley post-harvest before delivering it into one of the six grain stores under our ownership throughout the UK.
After storage, the barley will be delivered into the sites of our malting division Simpsons Malt to produce high-quality malts for the distilling, brewing and food industries. Many of our customers on long-term contracts with us are part of a Growers Group, where we have segregated the malting barley they have grown in storage and production for a specific end user.
