Barley Starch

Barley Starch for many kind of purposes

We produce exceptionally pure barley starch of consistent quality that is suitable for a wide variety of uses. Our largest customer groups are in the paper and paperboard, brewing and food industries. Regenerative barley starch is the answer for growing needs of our products' climate impacts. Regenerative barley starch is produced from regenerative farming. It is a way of considering several aspects effecting the growth of barley and the health of soil.

We have produced barley starch since 1987 at Koskenkorva. Our starch plant is a forerunner in the bio and circular economy. The operations of the plant include producing starch, ethanol and animal feed raw material as well as carbon dioxide capture. A bio power plant utilises our effluents. Our goal is carbon neutral production by the year 2026. Our barley starch is produced using Finnish barley. Our raw material is locally sourced and our production takes place close to our customers. That is why we are known for rapid and reliable deliveries.
