ENVIRONMENTAL charity Surfers against Sewage is set to benefit from a collaboration between a bespoke brewery and a supermarket giant to turn bread into beer.

The team will then donate some of the the profits to fund the charity’s beach clean-up campaign.

Tiny Rebel Brewery has teamed up with Iceland to make the most of the supermarket’s three-tonne crop of waste bread.

The frozen food supplier hopes to use up much of its surplus bread over the next year, and 10p from each bottle sold will be donated to Surfers Against Sewage.

The beer will be called Bread Board.

“We’re helping to avoid food waste and ensuring our resources are being used to their very best potential,” said Iceland’s MD Richard Walker.

Brad Cummings, co-founder of Tiny Rebel said: “We’re really passionate about reducing waste.”

The donations will be used to fund beach cleans and other initiatives to champion the reduction of single-use plastic consumption.
