Our Inverness maltings, situated in the heart of the Highlands, is organic certified which means we’re able to offer our customers malt that conforms to the Organic Food Federation (OFF) principles. The production of Organic Malt is important as it supports agricultural sustainability and our recognition that we’re custodians of the land on which we grow malting barley for the next generation.
Grown from certified seed and having OFF accreditation ensures our Organic Malt conforms to strict standards which are applied throughout processing to maintain its organic status and make sure there is clear segregation between products thus no cross contamination occurs.
As per the OFF principles, our Organic production demonstrates a system that combines best environmental practices both on farm and during the malt production. Our Inverness maltings is perfectly suited to the production of Organic malt as the SGKV boxes are used to steep, germinate and kiln without movement of the barley to ensure the most gentle of grain handling.
As with any grain, Organic barley is at the mercy of Mother Nature and the various challenges of any growing season. Grown using natural substances and processes, the grain can be more susceptible to fungal diseases, insect pests and weeds so customers need to be aware of the risks to crop whenever planning to use Organic Malt in their production. As such, given the above, Bairds Malt do not hold stocks of organic malt but rather make it to order working in partnership with both our growers and our customers, season in and season out, to meet the customer requirements.
