Holyrood to ban foreign grain?  Add/Read Comments

The future supply of Scottish grain to the whisky industry is being threatened by the low prices paid to farmers.

Stackyard.com
"Many farmers are thinking twice about growing malting barley, a key ingredient in the production of Scotch whisky, because the price being paid to them does not cover production costs. NFUS is extremely concerned that any increase in the use of imported, non-Scottish grain in the production of Scotch whisky could undermine the integrity of the Scotch whisky brand and jeopardise future sales."

UPDATE: The motion that only home-grown barley should be used to make Scotch whisky found no support in the Scottish parliament. Holyroods newest MSP, Liberal Democrat Andrew Arbuckle, made the proposal the cornerstone of his first members motion, arguing that the move would give Scotch whisky protected geographical indicator (PGI) status. http://business.scotsman.com/agriculture.cfm?id=427032005
