How this Aussie brand is repurposing food waste...
The Local Brewing Co are on a mission to reduce food waste at a retail level byusing unsold supermarketbread and excess white peaches within their production line. These ingredients are incorporated into their White Peach Surplus Sour craft beer, which is their second release under the Surplus Sour brand. Their first release was a Watermelon Sour that used unsold melons and bread from Coles suppliers.
The Local Brewing Co impact
Not only does this initiative reduce food waste, it also creates a new revenue stream for imperfect or unsold items that would still produce greenhouse gases whether composted or sent to landfill!
Did we mention the legends from Local Brewing Co continue to support food waste reduction by donating a portion of its revenue to a Coles partnered food rescue organisation 'SecondBite'. For every pack and pint of beer purchased, they provide a meal to someone in need that uses rescued ingredients. They have donated40,000 mealssince the beginning.
