Robin Appel continue to identify new market
opportunities for members’ crops and were
pleased to load the f rst ever cargo of 1500
tonnes of English Organic malting barley,
reaching its destination of Sweden, in February.
The double digit growth of the Organic
market across mainland Europe
represents an opportunity for UK growers.
The Swedish maltster we are now supplying
is working with a single brewer to convert
10% of its brands to Organic status in order to
meet the Swedish Government’s 10% target.
The MV Willeke was loaded outof Southampton
and we were able to pre-deliver the shipment
prior to the vessel arriving. Once berthed, the
MV Willeke was loaded within just 5 hours and
immediately set sail for Halmstad, Sweden.
