Two Cheers?


Interesting news that some of the 24 million a day waste slices of bread in the UK are to be converted into Toast ale (http://www.theguardian.com/uk-news/2016/jan/22/toast-ale-beer-surplus-bread-feedback-food-waste). On the one hand, this is an interesting attempt to utilise some of the otherwise wasted food in the country but this news come out on the day that it is confirmed that the UK profits of beer, spirits and wine producers depend on encouraging folk to consume dangerously high levels of alcohol. The arrangement will only work if consumers of 'Toast' drink less of the other stuff.
