Barley Production

Targeting Sustained Development

All Axereal barley farmers cultivate their crops according to a strict sustainable development policy.

As sustainability becomes an ever increasing issue throughout the entire supply chain, Boortmalt strives to link customer expectations for malt with sustainable farming practices in the production of malting barley.

As part of our commitment and support of sustainable agriculture, Boortmalt is a member of The Sustainable Agriculture Initiative (SAI) Platform and a leading participant in the SAI forum.
