Canada Malting Company, the largest Canadian malt supplier, has completed the addition of a new adjuncts processing facility and bagging line.
It says this will allow for greater quality control and product modification capabilities to better serve craft brewers and distillers.
Part of CMC’s portfolio includes unmalted adjuncts, such as flaked oats, rye, wheat and rice, which are used to add unique haze, body and flavor characteristics to beer.
Construction on the new facility, located in Calgary, began in 2021.
The equipment was installed in the summer of 2022 and initial commissioning began in October, with testing conducted over the following six months.
All systems are now operational, and processes have been fine-tuned to achieve quality adjuncts that meet brewer specifications.
