About Us

Our Facilities

Aerial viewHighland Grain Ltd. owns and runs its own drying and storage plant, based 6 miles North of Inverness on the Black Isle. Built in 1978 to handle 4,400 tonnes of malting barley, subsequent expansions now mean the grain plant is capable of drying and storing 40,000 tonnes of dried product.

The drying plant consists of 5 continuous flow dryers, and storage facilities are in 22 silos (ranging from 250 tonne capacity up to 2,300 tonne capacity) and two flat stores of 7,500 tonne capacity each.

Highland Grain Ltd. is constantly evolving its systems to increase resource efficiency, with initiatives including heat recovery on its drying systems, power synchronisation and using biomass as an alternative fuels source.

Our Staff

All Directors represent Members of the Society, and Board Meetings are held every 6 weeks.  The Board consider that good governance is key to the success of the society in meeting its business objectives.

On site, 9 permanent staff are employed whilst additional staff are recruited from July to October so that a 24/7 service can be provided to members, as required.

Highland Grain Ltd. is believed to be the first grain cooperative in the UK to be approved as an ‘Investor In People’ which has provided an effective and structured framework for staff training and development whilst also involving staff in business planning.
