Record Production at Yorkshire Maltings

Record Production at Yorkshire Maltings

2016 was a record year for Muntons Flamborough maltings, breaking through the 100,000-tonne barrier for the first time.  102,922 tonnes of malt were produced at the Yorkshire plant, a proud achievement for the maltings team.

When the plant was first built at Bridlington in 1964, it had a capacity of just 45,000 tonnes and was ideally situated to serve the needs of the UK’s northern breweries and the Scottish distilleries. Investment in the 1990’s in two planned phases lifted Bridlington’s capacity to 84,000 tonnes, still some way off the 100,000-tonne barrier.

Subsequent investments have been targeted towards working smarter; allowing greater throughput and improved levels of malt quality and it has been these minor yet important changes that have seen output increase to today’s record level.

Guy Newsam, Muntons, General Manager Malt Production, says: “In 2016 the maltings at Bridlington made a total of 102,922 tonnes of malt, which is a new high for the plant and is the result of great teamwork.”  He continues: “We have continued to invest in keeping the maltings at the forefront of modern malting technology, which, coupled with the team capitalising on opportunities new barley varieties offer, has meant we have surpassed previous production output levels, whilst maintaining our key focus on our customers’ quality needs.”

In addition to their Flamborough maltings at Bridlington, Muntons also produce malt in Stowmarket, Suffolk.  Here they also saw record output from their Cedars maltings making this a record year all round with a combined output of over 194,000 tonnes of malt within their group.
