Toast was the first UK brewery to become a Certified B Corp. It has open-sourced its recipe and collaborates with breweries and bakeries all over the world to drive systemic change. All Toast’s profits go to charities fixing the food system.
Louisa Ziane, co-founder of Toast, said: “We’re incredibly proud to be one of 205 organisations nationally to be recognised with a prestigious Queen’s Award for Enterprise. We’re a small business but have had a huge impact over the past 5 years, preventing over 2 million slices of bread from being wasted whilst inspiring brewers all over the world to use surplus bread. Food production is the biggest contributor to climate change but one third of all food is wasted. We’re here to change that, over a pint.”
Now in its 55th year, the Queen’s Awards for Enterprise are the most prestigious business awards in the country, with winning businesses able to use the esteemed Queen’s Awards emblem for the next five years. Applications for Queen’s Awards for Enterprise 2022 open on the 1st May 2021. For more information, visit https://www.gov.uk/queens-awards-for-enterprise.
