Our strong relationships at both ends of the supply chain allow Frontier to create partnership agreements that benefit everyone. With Molson Coors, Frontier has created and managed a Growers’ Group for the last ten years, providing farmers with growing protocols and a guaranteed grain contract, and Molson Coors with high quality malting barley to the required specification and volumes. This is just one example of the way in which weare able to bring growers and consumers together to the benefit of all.
