Over a century of heritage driving us forward
Who We Are
Canada Malting Co. (CMC) is Canada’s largest malting business. We’re privileged to work with farming communities across the Canadian prairies–and, whether it’s critical infrastructure, local jobs or market access, we work hard to support them. We currently operate three malthouses (Calgary, Thunder Bay, Montreal) and nine Country Elevators. We are part of a global network of malt houses and distribution centers that combined are the 4th top global malt producers.

TORONTO MALT HOUSE

Malt demand soars after US tariffs on Canadian imports are lifted and Prohibition ends. In 1957, two malt houses are added to the 1947 facility.
MONTRÉAL MALT HOUSE
With the completion of a new malt house in the Old Port of Montréal, Canada Malting becomes the largest global malt producer.
Calgary builds “E-House,” a vertical tower maltings, in response to heavy demand for Canadian Pils malt by Japanese brewers.
PURCHASE OF BARLEY ELEVATORS
The 9 Country Elevators ensure access to the best Canadian malting barley by handling only malting quality grain and giving farmers better access to the market.
A BRAND FOR THE NEXT CENTURY
