The Ameropa Group has decided to exit the Malting Barley Trade
This decision is mainly driven by the fact that the malting barley market did not develop as Ameropa had expected and there are too little commonalities between the malting barley trade and Ameropa’s core business.
Ameropa’s core business consists in the trading of fertilizers, wheat, corn and oilseeds. These are areas where Ameropa identified significant growth potential on which Ameropa would like to focus. Interbrau therefore will stop its trading activities by the end of 2017. It goes without saying that all existing contracts will be honored and that the 2016 harvest program will be executed as per usual.
Ameropa would like to take this opportunity to thank Sönke Weich and his team for their dedication and achievements.
