We are a social enterprise and Certified B Corp. We donate 100% of our profits to the charity Feedback, who campaign for a better food system. Their research into the causes of food waste, particularly in supply chains, has led to huge changes in society’s attitude toward wasting food. They run three key campaigns:
1. Feeding the 5000 is a public feast that draws attention to the amount of edible food discarded. If you’d like to organize one of these celebratory events, they’ve published their toolkit online here.
2. The Gleaning Network co-ordinates teams of volunteers, farmers and food redistribution charities to salvage the thousands of tonnes of fresh fruit and vegetables that are wasted on farms every year across the UK and Europe, and direct this fresh, nutritious food to people in need. If you’d like to volunteer, sign up here.
3. The Pig Idea seeks to lift the EU ban on feeding catering waste to pigs, and encourages food surplus to be fed to animals rather than crops that people could eat. Bread and spent brewers grains can be fed to pigs so if you’re a baker or a brewer, contact a feed producer or your local farmer.
Using surplus bread in our beer, and supporting Feedback, is part of our work towards the Global Goals. Goal 12.3 commits to halve per capita global food waste at the retail and consumer levels, and reduce food losses along production and supply chains, including post-harvest losses, by 2030.
Our commitment to have a material positive impact on society and the environment is embedded in our company Articles of Association.
