Since 1870 we’ve lived and breathed malting. With this passion and expertise, and by combining traditional and modern techniques, we create an impressive range of malted and non-malted products, including several unique and exclusive barley malts.
We have a wide range of malts suitable for brewing and distilling to provide you with the foundations for creating your next beer or whisky.
From our traditional floor maltings to our state-of-the-art packaging line, all of our malts are processed by a team of skilled maltsters. Find out more about our different processes here.
Our team of maltsters and brewers have put together a number of different technical materials, from recipes to blog posts on conditioning, to assist you in your brewery or distillery. Find out more here in this section.
There is nothing more we love than talking to brewers and distillers so if you have any questions, or would like to arrange a call with a member of our team, please feel free to get in touch – we would love to hear from you!
Over 150 years of working hand in glove with growers – and of passing traditional practices from one generation to another – means sustainability has always been important to Crisp.
Now Anglia Maltings Holdings (AMH), of which Crisp Malt is part, has announced its commitment to Net Zero by 2045 and has launched our inaugural Sustainability Report.
The report outlines our Sustainability Strategy, which is guided by the UN Sustainable Development Goals and by the company purpose and values. It lays out the goals for AMH’s three businesses – maltsters, Crisp Malt; food ingredient producers, EDME; and cereal processors, Micronized Food Products – and the plans for achieving them.

Electricity across the company’s UK sites is from 100% renewable sources. The adoption of best techniques, including heat exchangers and CHP (combined heat and power) systems, ensures that CO2 emissions are minimised.
There is very little waste. Co-products from processing, for example, go to animal feed. Plus, the location of Crisp’s UK sites in the heart of the country’s best cereal growing regions, ensures the minimalisation of HGV food miles.
“We are on the right track, but of course there is still a lot to do,” says AMH chief executive, Stuart Sands.
“In a business built on the relationship with the land, we’re highly conscious of what has been passed down to us. We, in turn, have one eye on the future, and the legacy we will leave to those who follow. One of our company values, ‘Pass it on Better’, sums it up neatly.
“The impact of climate change affects us all, and we all have a part to play in reducing our impact on the environment. It is only by setting ambitious goals; devising effective strategies; and working cooperatively with partners and communities; that anything meaningful will be achieved.”
Stuart concludes, “We’re committed to net zero by 2045, and are working in partnership with our suppliers and customers to help us get there. Effective collaboration is the key to passing things on better to the next generation.”
