OUR MALTING PLANT

Our desire to be self-sufficient, while being able to control the supply and quality of our basic raw material were the primary reasons which led us to establish our very own Malting Plant: Greece’s first Greek owned malting facility and one of the world’s most technologically advanced, supplies our Thracian Malt to dozens of independent breweries throughout Greece and the Eastern Mediterranean.

Phase One of our Malting Plant was completed in 2014, while Phase Two which doubled our production capacity, was completed in 2017. We strictly adhere to the traditional purity law (Reinheitsgebot), using only water and barley without any additives or plant hormones, under strictly controlled temperature, humidity and ventilation conditions. Using the latest technological advances, we manage to provide “bespoke” solutions for our customers, while offering competitive prices and the very best quality.

THRACIAN MALT

Macedonian Thrace Brewery introduced the concept of the contractual farming of malting barley to Greece in 2006. Since then, we have managed to cover our own needs and supply 90% of Greece’s independent brewers with premium quality, Greek-grown Thracian Malt. At the same time, over the last three years, we have begun the transformation of Greece into a net exporter of malt, with dozens of satisfied clients throughout the Balkans and the Eastern Mediterranean.

We implement high standards of integrated, environmentally friendly agricultural production management (Agro 2.1, 2.2) and we have specialized personnel overseeing every stage of the production process, from the field to the final customer. We offer a wide and constantly growing range of malts, while maintaining our strict quality standards, and securing the best possible prices for our customers and our contractual farmers.
