Adelie Foods has announced it has joined forces with Toast Ale to fight surplus bread waste.
Toast Ale is brewed by the renowned Hambleton Brewery using surplus bread from bakeries, deli’s and sandwich manufacturers. In turn, Adelie supply Toast with over 220kg of waste bread, which has resulted in more than 6,000 beers being made solely from Adelie’s contributions.
It’s reported 44% of bread baked in the UK is thrown away and Toast Ale’s aim is to contribute to the reduction of food waste by using a slice of bread for every bottle of beer brewed.
Adelie Foods marketing director said: “Adelie Foods has always been wholly committed to reducing our food waste and we are extremely proud of the fact that we send zero food waste to landfill sites, so when Toast Ale got in touch it seemed a perfect fit.
“We love what the guys at Toast Ale are trying to do and it’s a really unique and interesting way to use waste bread to make a positive impact. Not only do they use the bread to make something tasty but they also raise money for a really important cause too.
“We are delighted to be able to help and supply them with as much bread as we can, and we sincerely hope that everyone enjoys a bottle of Toast Ale in the very near future.”
Julie Prebble from Toast Ale said: “We met Adelie in August and they really couldn’t have been more can do right from the get go, which is brilliant for us.
“We have already made around 6000 beers using the bread they have supplied and we are certain that we are going to make thousands more over the coming months. They are on the same page as we are and really want to try and help with the reduction of food waste, so we hope this is the start of a beautiful relationship as we create a delicious solution to the problem of bread waste.”
