US Market development for malting barley varieties

The US market for craft beer with its strong growth in the recent years drives demand for European Malting Barley varieties. Not currently offered by US varieties, European types possess quality characteristics which are more suitable for high quality beers.

The EU funds made available to support this development will aim at legal counsel, the registration of plant variety rights and trademarks as well as specific marketing campaigns.

This project is supported by funds from the EFRE.
