Industry Report - Industry Analysis Chapter

The Malt Manufacturing industry has a long and illustrious history that ensures the United Kingdom is still one of the largest malt producers in the world. The industry uses about 2 million tonnes of British barley and converts it into about 1.5 million tonnes of malt each year for use by domestic and international brewers and distillers as well as food and other beverage manufacturers. The industry is relatively small in terms of participation, with just a handful of similarly sized maltsters producing the vast quantity of malt, supported by a few niche malt producers.
