Many of our customers will already be aware of the impact of last years spring and summer weather on the raw barley/general cereal prices. Spring Barley sowing was delayed by ‘the beast from the east’. Following this event, we had unremitting hot weather throughout the summer months. This affected northern European crops even more where the summer weather was even more intense. Consequently, UK barley pricing into malting plants suffered significant price increase pressure from the general grain market and foreign buyers. This means that the basic pricing on our raw materials went up which we must, unfortunately pass on to customers.
We have tried to minimise the impact of the increase and by also offering a winter variety ‘Craft’ which is a relatively new IBD list approved winter barley. This will be available from 1st February 2019. Our new pricing will be effective from 2nd January 2019. Our product and price listing also includes many new products such as: North American specialist malts, rice hulls, fruit purees, kegs and ancillary equipment. Our one stop shop pricing is available through our customer services team at Peterborough or through your regional Key account Manager.
