UAB “Maltosa” was established in December 2001. Business Plan “Reorientation of a Grain Processing Company for Malt Production” was prepared and modernization of the Company began in 2002 leading up to the start of malt production in the end of 2004. The Company has been operating in full capacity since 2005.
The entire Company has been fully automated and controlled at the central control panel. The current program controls operations of all technological lines and ensures production of high quality malt. A modern laboratory has been reconstructed and equipped for the purpose of quality assurance of the products. In addition to the modern quality analysis devices, the installed micro-saline-facilities allow analysing and programming of a future technological process and enable manufacturing of high-quality products made of different varieties of malting barley.
Malting barley of the required quality supplied by Lithuanian grain growers under contracts is the base ensuring production of high-quality malt. Farmers from Švenčionys, Ignalina, Biržai, Joniškis, Panevėžys, Kupiškis districts grow malting barley for us. Contracts are concluded with farmers under favourable conditions, they are provided with seeds and fertilizers and the funds are deducted only during the stage of making final settlements for the purchased grain.

Our Company exports almost all (95 percent) malt of this type. Caramel malt finds its way to the Latvian, Estonian, German, Russian, and Belarusian markets.
