Cheers for less food waste! Toast Ale brews beer with bread that would otherwise be wasted

Toast Ale is a British brewing company that makes fighting food waste enjoyable! (if you like drinking beer). Did you know that one-third of the food produced in the world is wasted? And one of the most common items is bread. With 44% of all the bread produced in the UK being wasted, Toast Ale mission was clear, create a tasty beer selection while reducing this awfully high number. Toast Ale uses 30% less malted barley than other brewing companies by using stale bread to brew its different kinds of beer ranging from Lager, to IPA and Stout and it has saved 2,067,094 slices to date. That is 3 times the height of Mount Everest. The company both prevents food waste and using less barley means its climate footprint is lower with reduced demand for water and lower carbon emissions. On top of brewing their own, Toast Ale collaborates with breweries all over the world to help them use surplus bread and guide their transition to circular brewing and provides an open-source recipe for home brewers. The company also donates all distributable profits to charities working to solve the food system and has donated £48,498 to charity to date. Toast Ale is a social enterprise and is very transparent about its environmental impact. The company is working towards improving its packaging the largest share of its carbon footprint and is investing in regenerative agriculture on the way to net-zero. "Raise a toast, save the world. Cheers!" as their motto states! https://www.toastale.com/

              Circularity means using waste from one process as input into another.

                This is proper use of waste by giving it a new essence.

                        Hi Ingmar. We don’t export overseas due to environmental reasons. Sorry. Hope you can get to the UK one day to raise a Toast with us. Cheers

                        This is awesome and the leftover sludge can be used to produce mushrooms, and after harvest the leftover can be used to produce Mycelium based bricks a truly sustainable building material. Circular manufacturing, cradle to cradle
