Providing Essential Ingredients
We have some basic knowledge that malt is needed to make beer. But, what exactly is malt? We usually associate it someway with barley. Actually though, malt involves malting. The grain, usually barley, is allowed to germinate to a certain point after which it is dried to halt the germination. This process is necessary so that the grains can further be modified into sugars.
Malt Products Corporation is a privately held company that specializes in providing malt, molasses and other sweeteners. It was founded in 1957 and is headquartered in Saddle Brook, New Jersey, USA. It has manufacturing plants in the U.S., Canada, England and the Netherlands.
Due to its various locations, the company can provide European malt to a U.S. client and U.S. malt to a European client. It can offer diverse types of malt to different customers. The same is true for its other sweetener products.
Malt Products Corporation does not produce the final end goods, but rather provides an essential ingredient needed to create the final product. Aside from brewing, the company’s products are used in a wide range of food items from baked goods like pizza, beverages such as soy milk and malt milk, cereals like breakfast cereals, as well as ice cream cones and table syrups.
This is not a company that just provides semi-processed agricultural goods to its customers. Clients can collaborate with the company’s personnel to find the right kind of malt, molasses and other sweeteners for their final product. The company can also customize their products to suit the client’s needs. It has its own team of researchers to help it continuously improve its products.
Quality control is also important. The company has to deliver malt or other products with the same consistent quality as its last delivery since any variations can grossly affect the quality of the final merchandise.
This is one of those companies that are largely unknown to the general public, though it has for decades been providing essential ingredients to brewers, bakers and other food companies around the world.
