The transaction involves the global malt business, including 15 facilities across four continents, representing more than 500 people.
This transaction would give Boortmalt access to a global footprint and offer further growth opportunities for Cargill’s Malt business.
Boortmalt is a subsidiary of Axéréal, creating malt for food industries, distillers and breweries. It operates in 10 malting plants in Europe and produces over a million tons of malt a year, stating it is one of the world’s leading maltsters with a long-term commitment to the malting industry.
