Contract Cultivation is core for our rawmaterial
Altia signs cultivation contracts with grain traders or directly with farmers. In short, a cultivation contract means that the farmer commits to producing barley with a high starch content and selling it to Altia, and thus being entitled to possible starch bonus of EUR 2–6/tonne. Contracts are valid for a period of one year at a time. You can request further information from your grain trader or Altia’s grain team. Occasionally, we also offer the opportunity to agree the pricing for future deliveries of starch barley produced under a cultivation contract.
