A malt firm boss said he was “delighted” by all the positive comments he received about the ingredient from Women’s Institute (WI) members at an event in Suffolk.
Andy James, corporate marketing manager at Stowmarket-based Muntons, addressed around 800 WI members at the WI annual general meeting at Trinity Park, Ipswich, earlier this month at which 300 malt extract samples were handed out.
“Many people may have heard the word malt but few know what it actually is and how good it is in bringing a commercial quality to home cooking,” he said. “Malt is a natural ingredient made from barley grown locally in East Anglia, made using just water and heat. It was a delight to hear the many positive comments made by the WI members about malt.”
Muntons is sponsoring a food mixer prize for a WI contest. The winner will be announced at the Suffolk Show.
