United Malt is the fourth largest commercial maltster globally, with approximately 1.25Mtpa of capacity and more than 95% average utilisation across 13 processing plants in Canada, the United States of America (US), Australia, and the United Kingdom (UK). We also operate an international distribution business, which provides a full-service offering for craft brewers and distillers, including malt, hops, yeast, adjuncts, and related products. United Malt has been operating as a network of companies spanning North America, the UK, and Australia since the early 1990’s when Canada Malting purchased both Great Western Malting and Bairds Malt. In 1995 the companies, along with Barrett Burston Malting in Australia, were purchased to form ConAgra Malt. Since then, the craft beer industry has exploded. With the acquisition of North Country Malt in the US, we expanded into the warehouse and distribution business to support Commercial craft breweries. We later duplicated that model with the startup of Brewers Select in the UK and acquisition of Cryer Malt, serving Australia and New Zealand in 2017. We continue with our commitment to the industry to serve brewers, distillers, and other users of malt and craft ingredients all around the world. Our international reach includes an extended network of distribution partners who deliver our malts and products locally and represent our brands and company values.
