Malts
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.

Our state-of-the-art malting plant in Komotini was completed in 2014 and is the most modern facility in Europe of its kind. With its expansion in the second half of 2017, we doubled our production capacity, ensuring consistent quality, while covering the needs of our collaborating breweries in Greece and abroad with our Thracian Malt.
We adhere to the traditional German Purity Law (Reinheitsgebot), with the exclusive use of water and barley, without additives and without phytohormones, under perfectly controlled conditions of temperature, humidity and ventilation and we use the most advanced technology in the production process.
Thus, we meet the special needs of our customers, offering fixed and competitive prices, while we produce malt that exceeds the highest quality protocols, investing in long-term and mutually beneficial relationships with all our customers.

In addition, the strategic position of our facilities at the center of the cultivable land of Eastern Macedonia and Thrace (25,000 acres for 2018) and the saving of energy and water at all stages of production, enabled us to reduce CO2 emissions and achieve the goal of zero environmental contaminants in Thracian Malt through the implementation of integrated management systems (Agro 2.1, 2.2).

THRACIAN MALT
Our aim to create a 100% authentic Greek beer that will be brewed in our country by a company of Greek interests based in Greece and made with Greek raw materials, has been achieved to the maximum with the verticalization of production and the creation of our Thracian Malt. Thracian Malt is the soul of VERGINA beer, as it gives its characteristic body and special tasty character to our beers.
It was back in 2006, when we, at the Macedonian Thrace Brewery first implemented the the concept of the contractual farming in Greece. Since then, we have managed to cover our own needs and supply 90% of Greeceā€™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 in the wider region of the Southeastern Mediterranean, already exporting to several countries, such as Israel, Cyprus, Turkey, Bulgaria, Albania and elsewhere.
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.

Thracian Malt, from varieties of two-row barley, through the strict production criteria and its excellent quality, has managed to be the first choice for both Greek and foreign brewers, offering a wide range of malts, which are constantly enriched with new options, always maintaining its standard principles, with respect for the customer and the producer.
