We are continuously looking for sustainable sources of water and ways to use water more responsibly. Even when there is no financial incentive to reduce consumption, we do so because it reduces our impact on the planet.
Our malting plant in Argentina makes use of the water from the Parana River, the second-longest river in South America. We carefully treat this water before using it throughout the plant, from the steeping and germination processes to the chilled water plant. After use, we treat the water again using an 8-step process to ensure the water is of sufficient quality to be returned to the river. In doing so, we create a circular model of water use that has minimal impact on the environment.
