Surplus Brew

Bakeries team up with local breweries to make the most of surplus bread

Implications - An excellent example of the circular economy in action, bakeries and breweries are collaborating on bread-brewed beer created from leftover bread in an effort to curb food waste. This progression suggests an opportunity for brands to collaborate with unlikely partners in order to transform surplus product into something new in solidarity with climate change efforts.

Workshop Question - What other industries can you look to in order to establish a partnership that focuses on eliminating your brand's environmental impact through waste reduction?
