The Heineken brewery in Irkutsk plans to increase the barley acreage in the Irkutsk Region 5.5. times to fully provide their production with the locally produced cereal used to prepare malt.
“I guess that within two years we will provide ourselves with this raw stuff. We are speaking about increasing the barley acreage to 10 thous. ha. In such a case, we will completely cover the needs of our malthouse (in Irkutsk – IF), whose production capacity is designed for 30 thous. tons of malt per year,” as Evgeny Strelets, the Director of Heineken Brewery Baikal branch, said at the press conference of the Interfax Siberia agency in Irkutsk.
