Christopher Marquis of Forbes writes on a brewery that is addressing food waste.
- Each year roughly 1/3 of food that is produced goes to waste.
- Toast Ale is a UK-based brewing company that is addressing food waste by making beer with surplus fresh bread that would otherwise be thrown out.
- The brewery also partners with other companies to implement regenerative food waste solutions.
- Private sector innovation is creating durable climate solutions.
“Using surplus bread to brew beer, they hope to create a circular economy that produces tasty, sustainable beverages. Their circular economy model, which is regenerative by design, reduces the need for barley by using bread that otherwise would go to waste. This practice is designed to use less land, water, and energy, and avoid carbon emissions. But the company’s biggest mission is to educate people about wastefulness within the food system and their role in changing that.”
