30% of all food produced is lost
According to the UN nearly 30% of the World’s agricultural land is occupied to produce food that is ultimately never consumed!
Spent grain from the brewery industry is an untapped resource packed with fibre, protein, and aroma.
Beer is the 3rd most consumed beverage in the world*, only surpassed by water and tea, and every year, breweries all over the world produce and discard more than 40 million tons of spent grain, making it one of the biggest side streams in the food industry.
After brewers have malted and mashed the grains to extract their sugars, the grains transform to a new fibre, protein, and aroma-packed resource. So not only are we wasting nutrition, we are also using energy and land to do so. The double trouble of the food system in a nutshell.
