2017, The 40th Harvest at Tore!
The central grain drying and storage plant at Tore was built and commissioned in 1977/8 by the Black Isle Grain Group, with only three x 300 tonne green silos and four x 1100 tonne dry storage silos. Amalgamating with Easter Ross Grain in 1992, the merged business and site operator became known as Highland Grain Limited and has continued its dynamic development ever since.
Expanding through the years the facility handled over 45,000 tonnes of malting barley through the Tore site in the 2017 harvest, with its 9 permanent and 5 seasonal employees.
At the heart of the Highland Grain ethos is the strength of purpose gained through the co-operation of its membership, delivering high quality malting barley and exceptional service to its customers, whilst striving to improve its efficiency throughout the business – from pioneering energy saving initiatives in the grain plant through to the service it delivers for members.
