We promote the continuous improvement of farming methodologies through local sourcing programs which prioritize practices that are environmentally sound and beneficial to local communities.
As the global leader in malt production, we are strongly aware of our responsibility to help innovate and improve the farming practices of our barley growers. This responsibility stems not only from our excellent track record of supplying some of the best quality malting barley to our brewing partners, but also from our strong commitment to improving the livelihoods and wellbeing of our growers and their communities and to improve the environmental footprint of our supply chain.
We understand that sustainability is a constant learning process and that any changes, however small, need careful consideration of feasibility and impact on our growers. By working closely with our barley supply chain partners, we have ensured that our ambitions are completely aligned and that there is clear motivation to improve the sustainability of farming practices wherever possible.
