Skagit Valley Malting is proud to announce its Bronze at The 2022 RMI Brewing Supply Awards. These awards recognize excellence in the supply of malt products to the brewing industry through transformative innovations, sustainability initiatives, and supply chain agility.
The award was given for Category B:
“Maltsters who have an operational plant capable of outputting less than 50KT of malt annually and who have implemented over the past 3 years projects and/or programs which have either essentially transformed the agricultural, manufacturing and/or sales & distribution characteristics of the malting industry as recognized by their customers & industry peers.”
Highlighting increased diversity in product line-up by offering Gluten-Free Malts while working towards full Gluten-Free certification, along with a deepened commitment to sustainability. By adding on-farm anaerobic digesters, and increasing the number of Salmon-Safe, Organic, and other third-party certified growers, Skagit Valley Malting generated very positive feedback from the panel of judges.
Combining new processes and diversified sustainability practices, Skagit Valley Malting was the only American malthouse and the only member of the Craft Maltsters Guild, to be honored at the awards gala that took place on March 30th, 2022 in Antwerp Belgium. Other award winners included – Category A: Muntons, Bairds, Malteurop; Category B: Castle Malting, The Swaen/Birdies.
Dave Green, CEO of Skagit Valley Malting on the award, “It means a lot to our team to be recognized for the work they’ve put in over the past couple of years, as we’ve made changes to our company and moved toward a more sustainable supply chain. We’re also proud to be held up alongside these other companies who are helping to move our industry in a great direction.”
