About the company

Boortmalt (the malting business of the French cooperative group AXEREAL) is the largest malting company globally with 3 million tons of malt sold throughout the world every year. The company is one of the largest industrial malts producers in the world and more than 50% of the total European malt export passes through the Port of Antwerp, making Antwerp the malt capital of Europe, and Boortmalt its logistic heart.  With 1000 employees spread over 5 continents the company is focused on producing an extensive range of high- quality malt types in order to meet the requirements of its brewing and distilling customers around the world. By using the most modern production techniques and with its far-reaching logistics capability, it is able to supply world markets both effectively and efficiently. Last December, Boortmalt acquired the malt business of Cargill and consequently the company has doubled in size, from 10 sites in Europe to 20 sites across the globe (and from 300 to 1000 employees).
