Toast Ale is a unique beer brand using surplus bread in their brewing process that would have otherwise gone to waste.
Did you know 44% of bread is never eaten? Food production is the biggest contributor to climate change, and then one-third of food is wasted, so this ethical beer brand wants to change throwing away food that’s good to waste. Toast Ale works with bakeries and sandwich makers to prevent waste.
The profits if this sustainable beer brand goes to charities that are focused on fixing the food waste problems from its core. Their main partner is Feedback, a campaign group working to regenerate nature by transforming our food system.
Toast Ale also brings a circular approach when it comes to packaging: it uses steel kegs that, once empty, are collected from pubs, cleaned and reused. The glass bottles are made by Ardagh Group, based just 60 miles from their brewery partner. The recycled glass content is typically 43% with the remainder made up of sand sourced locally and other naturally occurring raw materials. Glass can be recycled endlessly – but only 67% is recycled in the UK (74% in Europe).
Now Cheers! Enjoy a cheeky pint, knowing you’re helping people and the planet.
