About the Company

 Bairds Malt Limited was formed in March 1999, when two existing companies, Hugh Baird & Sons Limited and Moray Firth Maltings plc, merged to form a new company.  We currently operate four malting plants within the UK and produce malt primarily for the brewing and distilling industries. Approximately 10% of our malt is exported to customers around the world who want to use British malt in their brewing or distilling operations.

Our merchanting business, Scotgrain Agriculture Limited, procures malting barley for our own use and trades in barley, other grains, and related agricultural commodities. 

We celebrate our people and we work together to deliver on what we promise.  We are focused on developing a skilled workforce and encouraging diversity of both people and thinking.
