Feeding crops with ‘waste’

A £6.1m investment in an anaerobic digester at Muntons Stowmarket is a full cradle to cradle approach. Barley that is bought from local farmers (within a 60-mile radius) is made into malt and malted ingredients at the site. The AD plant is powered by waste product from the factory and since the processes used within Muntons do not require the addition of anything other than water and heat the resulting fertiliser is good quality and perfect for putting back on the land that grows malting barley.
