About Barrett Burston Malting

A pioneer in Australian malting since the 1860s, Barrett Burston Malting continues to be an industry leader in product quality and customer service.

With 240,000 tonnes of malt production capacity, Barrett Burston Malting is a major supplier to the domestic brewing industry and has been one of the leading providers to key Asian export markets for many years.

Barrett Burston Malting’s focus on customer service begins with barley breeding. The company’s joint breeding efforts help bring new varieties to market and lead the way to achieving superior product quality.
