Barley is one of the main ingredients of beer and therefore its availability and quality are crucial to our company’s future and success. However, with the rise of crop issues due to increasingly erratic climate patterns, farmers are moving away from malting barley in favour of crops with simpler management and more predictable revenues. In order to be able to keep brewing great beers in future, it is essential that malting barley remains a relevant and attractive crop to the best growers in the world.
