Our Quality

Great Western Malting Co. Limited is focused on delivering quality malt to meet customer requirements. We apply strict quality-control procedures in grain selection, malt production, shipping, and testing. Within our exacting standards, Great Western Malting employs a world-class quality and food-safety management system (Hazard Analysis & Critical Control Points (HACCP) Certification) thus ensuring a high standard of food-safety management.


Grain Selection

Our focus on malt quality and functionality begins at the time of grain selection. Malting barley selection is based on the quality testing and known malting characteristics of each variety in each growing region. Our extensive network allows us access to substantial barley stocks so we can select the right varieties to meet our specific malt-quality requirements after processing.

Processing

Our facilities feature state-of-the-art process tools, such as in-process, near-infrared spectroscopy, statistical process control, and world-class process-automation software systems that provide our talented maltsters with the tools they need to produce the highest-quality malts.
