In the run-up to our latest campaign – Buy Social for a Better World – in October, we’re profiling some of our fantastic members and the amazing impact they make.

Here we’re looking at Toast Ale, who use bread that would otherwise go to waste to brew delicious beer. Not only do they reduce food waste through their business, they also donate 100% of their profits to improving the food system.

“Food production is the biggest contributor to climate change, but one third of all food is wasted. We’re here to change that. We brew our planet saving beer with surplus fresh bread – to date we’ve used 1.4 million slices to avoid CO2. To date we’ve donated over £30,000 to charities fixing the food system. Raise a Toast. Save the world. Cheers”

“We use the Buy Social badge to help communicate our social mission to our customers. We share SEUK’s mission to build a better world, and it can all start over a cheeky pint.”

 Louisa Ziane, Global Brand and Sustainability Director, Toast Ale


Toast display the “Buy Social” badge on all their products. This proves they’re a certified social enterprise and gives consumers the confidence that their purchase goes towards bringing about a better world through genuine social or environmental impact.

In October we’re running an exciting campaign to encourage consumers to buy from social enterprises, by celebrating what they do and the positive difference they make: Buy Social for a Better World. A central part of this is making sure the “Buy Social” badge is both widely recognised and used by as many social enterprises as possible.
