Malteurop in France

France’s Champagne region underwent remarkable agricultural development beginning in the 1950s. Very quickly, and thanks to the vision of a few pioneers, some agricultural cooperatives decided to appropriate the added value from processing certain productions, and invested in particular in the brewing industry.

An initial malting plant was opened in Reims in 1961. A second plant was built in 1975 at Pringy (Marne). Then other malting plants were acquired – in Vitry-le-François (Marne) in 1977 and in Metz (Moselle) and Aire sur la Lys (Pas de Calais) in the 1980s. These were the beginnings of what was to become, in 1984, the Malteurop Group, a group which since its very origins has been built on privileged ties between agriculture and industry.

Located in the heart of the European Union’s prime malting barley production basin, the Group’s four French plants have a total production capacity of 410,000 metric tons and are committed to ensuring the security of supplies to French and German breweries as well as supplying the major export markets.

Malteurop France produces basic malts — Pilsen and Munich — from two- and six-row barley, as well as wheat malt.

All the Malteurop France malting plants are GMP (Good Manufacturing Practices) and ISO 22000 (Food Safety) certified.
