MEMBERS OF the Canadian malting barley industry have become partners in a malting barley research and market development facility, to be located in Winnipeg, Manitoba. The new facility will become a focal point for applied technical research and market support for Canada's malting barley marketers, processors and their customers in Canada and internationally.
The Canadian Malting Barley Technical Centre, established with capital investment by the Canadian Wheat Board and Canadian Grain Commission, will focus on applied research and pilot-scale malting and brewing tests of registered Canadian varieties. Specific research and technical projects will operate on a fee-for-service basis.
