Over the past 6 years, Boortmalt has cultivated a presence in Ethiopia to support local growers and conduct barley variety trials whilst deepening our understanding vis-à-vis growing local barley.
In 2018 we started the construction of our first malting plant in Africa and today, we are pleased to announce that our Ethiopian malting plant is fully operational.

Located in the Debre Birhan industrial park, the malt-house will offer 60,000 tonnes capacity, supplied through local farmers.

We are now ready to deliver to our customers from Ethiopia. A big step forward in Boortmalt history!
