A New Zealand company, Citizen, joins the up-cycling food trend by developing an innovative process that turns unsold food into an essential ingredient for beer making process.
The process goes as such; Citizen will pickup day old, stale bread from nearby supermarkets and bring it to their facilities. There, a custom built machine will process leftover food and turn it into a raw ingredient for beer making. Through this environmentally and socially responsible approach, Citizen can turn 280 loaves of bread into a single batch of beer resulting in a 25% fewer malted barley in brewing tanks.
As a result of its actions, Citizen has been at the forefront of the up-cycling movement and leading the industry on how to best leverage up-cycled ingredients within a manufacturing process. By drinking one of their three beers; Hazy IPA, Pale Ale, and Light Lager, you can also participate in the up-cycling movement and save our planet.
