Cargill’s malt business and Belgium’s Zuidnatie will build a new logistics platform in the port of Antwerp, Belgium.
Set to open in August 2018, it will offer transshipment facilities and storage for up to 300,000 mt of barley and malt.
This new facility will allow Cargill to provide its global malt customers centralized services and increased overseas connectivity in one location.
The facility will complement its existing European production footprint.
Activities such as loading, handling, packaging, storage of both barley and malt, and containerization will all happen at this new platform in Antwerp.
This allows Cargill to offer its customers even stronger end-to-end expertise, from sourcing barley to shipping quality malt to customers locally and worldwide.
Cargill’s malt business has a global footprint with 18 malting facilities (five in Europe) that connect all of the main barley growing regions of the world.
