It's easy to fight food waste with toast ale. Literally. Their palate-pleasing beers are made from leftover loaves of bread, chipping away at the 44% of bread that goes to waste. A shocking stat and just one small part of a mounting food waste problem that’s pretty terrible for the environment, to put it mildly.
By using surplus fresh bread instead of virgin barley, Toast Ale is also reducing the demand for land and water as well as avoiding the extra emissions that come from producing it. It makes perfect planet-saving sense. Supporting other organizations who want to fix the food system for people and the planet is important to them too, which is what their profits go towards. Oh, and we should mention that these beers are delicious too. You can find a Toast Ale alternative no matter what your favorite beer is, from craft lagers to session IPAs. In their words: raise a toast, save the world. Cheers! The beers themselves are great. I have been on a bit of a Lager discovery recently, and Toasts contender sits high in the pack, Super crisp, perfect for a summer afternoon. Their approach to brewing really stands out for me in the Coffee Porter and partnership with the café direct. Roxy from Cafédirect "Cafédirect teamed up with social enterprise and fellow B Corp Toast Ale to tackle food waste and to raise awareness of how important the food industry is in tackling climate change. Toast use bread that would otherwise go to waste to make beer!" Just try Toast beers. You won't be disappointed, and you are doing your bit to help with food waste.
