The Most Important Ingredient In Brewing

When aiming for high product quality, our approach to quality assurance is uniquely comprehensive. We work with our growers to ensure that the hops you use could not be of a higher quality. Find out more about how we guarantee optimum quality.

Safety First – That's Our Guarantee

For us at BarthHaas, it is important that you can concentrate on what you do best – creating first-class flavors for your customers. To make sure you can achieve this, our approach to quality assurance is uniquely comprehensive. We work with our growers to ensure that the hops and hop products you receive from us are of the highest quality. From the plant to the finished hop product we can guarantee complete traceability and quality. In order to improve our products and services in the long term, our processes are regularly reviewed.


All the hops we purchase are combined into blending samples according to precisely defined parameters and 100 % analyzed for possible pesticide residues. Only after we receive the analysis results, are the hops then released for processing or marketing. As an international acting group with facilities/sites in the USA, Australia and Europe we have established a Global Quality Group with regular meetings, to be able to act upon quality requirements from our customers.


How do we deal best with constantly changing residue regulations? Where do challenges arise in this respect and how can brewers reduce potential risks regarding MRL requirements inside and outside their home markets?
