Co-op Toast

The Co-op has launched Toast, a 4% hazy pale ale, in collaboration with Toast Ale, the company with a mission to help save the planet by using discarded bread that’s blended with barley malt to make beer.

44% of bread is never eaten and sandwich makers discard crusts. Globally, one third of all food is wasted.

Income from the sale of Toast beers goes to charities that are working to save the planet, such as the Rainforest Trust. Toast is a social enterprise company that rescues tonnes of surplus bread every year and has made 26 beers with 24 British breweries. In 2021 it was presented with the Queen’s Award for Enterprise for Sustainable Development.

The Co-op beer is made with surplus bread from Co-op suppliers and has notes of orange, lychee and mango. Four cans cost £7 from Co-op branches. It's brewed for Toast by SEB Brewery in Broadstairs, Kent, and is hopped with British Cascade and American Azacca and El Dorado hops.
