MP cheers growing hop business

12th September 2017

A Worcestershire business is aiming to put local crops in beers all over the world as it celebrates a great year for local hop growers.

And West Worcestershire MP took a tour of the Charles Faram and Co production facility in Newland, Malvern ahead of the harvest and chatted to managing director Paul Corbett about the company's expansion plans

The Malvern-based business ships hops across the globe and local hops are used to make some of the best beers in the world.

Harriett commented: "Paul has some really exciting expansion plans and I am delighted to help in whatever way I can.

"As well as selling to UK brewers, Paul exports to dozens of countries and he clearly has a strong drive to reach new markets and new buyers, wherever they are in the world.

"This year has been very good to hop farmers and I am grateful that Paul took the time to give me a tour of his Malvern site before the harvest rush starts.

Paul Corbett added: "We were delighted to give Harriett a tour of the site along with our new hop store and to show her our locally developed new hop varieties. Exports will be a key part of our business going forward and Harriett has already given us lots of ideas and help on how we can progress this.

"We are looking forward to working with the government's export team to help in this process."
