Food waste problem creates beer
Food waste is a huge global problem. 31% of food produced is lost or wasted through the value chain and as consumer waste.
That's why Tristram Stuart, an expert on the environmental and social impacts of food production, created Toast Ale in 2015. A start-up where all profits go to a charity aimed to stop the waste of food.
Toast Ale collects surplus bread from delis, bakeries and sandwich makers and use it to brew beer. 44% of all bread in the UK is thrown away so he want get a shortage of bread. This is a great example of circular economy.
