Our group...

The Malteurop Group is the world’s leading malt producer, with a current annual production capacity of more than 2,200,000 tons. The Group is present in 14 countries in Europe, North America, Oceania and Asia, with 27 industrial sites and 1,183 employees.

Founded in 1984, the Malteurop Group belongs to a group of cooperatives, including Champagnes Céréales, one of the leading cereal-grain collectors in France.

In 2012, Champagne Céréales merged with nouricia, giving birth to a new agro-industrial cooperative group: Vivescia, the major shareholder in Vivescia Industries, itself 100% owner of Malteurop Groupe. These shareholders have a long-term vision of their industrial commitments.

Belonging to a group of grain cooperatives that collect more than 1,500,000 tons of malting barley annually in Europe’s richest agricultural regions is a major strategic advantage. Malteurop’s proximity to the agricultural world allows it:

  • to hold a privileged position of visibility on the grain market,
  • to have access to information and analysis tools for managing the risks associated with agricultural raw-materials markets,
  • and to provide its customers with guarantees regarding the security of supplies, quality monitoring, and product traceability.

Malteurop is an international group, deeply rooted in the countries where it operates, and a dynamic company that anticipates the constantly evolving needs of its customers. Its research capabilities enable it to innovate by developing new barley varieties, new growing itineraries, new malts, and new growing areas for malting barley.

Malteurop’s strategy is to be a sustainable and profitable presence on the major international malt markets.

In the countries where Malteurop is already present, the Group’s ambition is to reach a sufficient critical mass, in the short term, to be in a position to organize the malt supply chain upstream from the barley sowing stage.

Malteurop is also determined to be a significant presence on emerging and developing markets.

Malteurop also wishes to develop long-term partnerships with its brewer customers, including the possible establishment of business in new territories in order to accompany them in their development.
