Grain growers in New Brunswick, Nova Scotia and Prince Edward Island have an opportunity to take advantage of a growing market in their region — malt barley.
Brewers from Atlantic Canada recently gathered in Halifax, N.S. to celebrate the end result of some of that malt barley. Produced by Canada Malting, Maritime Malt is a new malt product made from barley grown exclusively in the Maritimes — what Jay Hamachek, director of North American Business Development for the Canada Malting company, calls an identity-preserved product.
