Maximising the reuse of waste

 

We are a zero waste brewery and 100% of our brewery waste is recycled. For instance, all the dregs produced during the brewing process are sold as cattle feed and our labels are processed separately, after which they are used to make toilet paper, tissues, etc.

 

OBJECTIVES 2020

We are also working on reusing brewery waste by:

  • Carrying out at least three minor waste recycling projects in and around the brewery
  • Study into the final steps towards becoming a ‘zero waste’ brewery
