Toast Ale ( launched in the UK in January 2016, founded by global food waste campaigner Tristram Stuart. We’ve received global media attention and won multiple industry awards. We’re listed in Tesco, Waitrose, Spar Scotland and many independent stockists. We were the beer of choice at the Queen’s Tennis Championships and have spoken at events all over the country. We’re now operating in the UK, USA, South Africa, Brazil and Iceland and we’ve had interest from all over the world. Our ambition is to become one of the most successful global social enterprises and craft beer brands.

Toast Ale is on a mission to prove that the alternative to food waste is delicious. Toast is an awesome, award-winning beer brewed using fresh surplus bread that would otherwise be wasted. Did you know 44% of bread in the UK and over ⅓ of the fresh bread in the USA is never consumed? Our mission is to change that.

We source surplus fresh bread from bakeries and sandwich manufacturers. We contract brew with established brewers, leveraging their expertise to create truly delicious beers. We also collaborate to create exciting beers with local bread at a community level. There’s a slice of surplus bread in every bottle or can and our ambition is to end bread waste through the beer industry. All our profits go to our brilliant partner charity Feedback to support the fight against food waste, making Toast the best thing since, well, you know…
