Viking Malt is Introducing Barbin – The First E-platform for Grain Trade in Finland
The platform is called Barbin and it will improve communication and automate the grain trade activities between farmers and Viking Malt. With the Barbin e-platform, grain growing contracts and price fixations for current and coming crop years can be made electronically. The system also functions as a communication channel and transmits information on analysis results, intake planning and delivered volumes between grain purchasing and the contract farmers. The contract confirmations and grain price offers are directly sent to farmers’ mobile phones. Through the introduction of these modern communication tools, Viking Malt streamlines the information flow with their contract farmers and becomes a forerunner of modern grain trade practices in Finland.
