Malting barley conference provides latest industry news
The malting barley market rarely stands still. What with Brexit, changes in alcohol consumption, and in world barley supply and demand – not to mention better varieties and inputs coming onto the market – it’s a job to keep up!
Which is why we’ll be holding our inaugural spring malting barley conference for growers in the Eastern Counties on Wednesday 13 December – in Newmarket from 9.15am at the Rowley Mile Racecourse.
Bringing together leading industry experts – from technical to end market – it follows hot on the heels of our long-standing Southern Counties malting barley conference, held near Winchester on 5 December – an event described by speaker Jack Watts of AHDB as:
“the go to conference for anyone in the South of England wanting to know about malting barley!"
At the Southern Conference growers heard:
- How global beer consumption is shifting in favour of quality beers
- How this, plus other changes, such as reduced barley output from parts of the world, could be good news for the UK – with our reputation for producing quality malting barley, quality malt and quality beer
- Closer to home, how Brexit could have major implications for UK-grown malting barley
- Updates on the sensational spring malting barley variety, Laureate – now that it has full approval for malt distilling and brewing on the Institute of Brewing and Distilling approved list
- Latest news on the exciting new SDHI fungicide ELATUS ERA as its ‘launch’ continues into barley. Plus, tips on tackling the growing problem of Ramularia
The speaker line-up at our Eastern Counties malting conference will be different to the South. But the content is set to be no less enthralling!
