British multinational retailer Marks & Spencer and Adnams, a British brewery, have teamed up to launch a unique line of beer called 'Used Our Loaf' that makes use of discarded bread crusts from the retailer’s sandwiches.
The Adnams Used Our Loaf line includes three kinds of beer: Triple English Hop Southwold Pale Ale, Early Grey Pale Ale, and Raspberry Fruit Beer. The first batch of beer is said to have used more than three-quarters of a ton of surplus bread, plus three times as much barley, making for a finished product that's about a quarter bread waste.
Beyond brewing beer, Marks & Spencer and Adnams are further putting the spent grains to good use by sharing them with farms to be used as animal feed.
