Recipes against wasting bread


Bread is the Germans’ favourite food. Over 3000 varieties – always nice and fresh! But too much of a good thing is produced. Every year, 1.7 million tonnes of bread and baked goods end up in the rubbish. This is not only about food that is thrown away, but also about the environment. The arable land that is farmed just for the bin is bigger than Mallorca. Farmers, bakers and bread lovers are looking for new recipes for stale bread and against waste.
