ReBread Society

Delicious drinks should be sustainable, and save waste. Here's how I'm doing it: Introducing ReBread Society, mind-blowing beverages from yesterday's bagel and last week's focaccia. I'm Hardeep Rehal, and I'm starting a drinks movement that aims creativity at food waste.

Serious things first.
Tons of food are wasted yearly. Commonly, it's stale bread. Ketel One is helping me out. Their vodka is made from winter wheat at Nolet's windmill in the Netherlands, their mission is also about transforming grains.

Inspiring people.
ReBread Society inspires to make phenomenal drinks with stale bread. Better than binning it, imagine:

  • Lacto-fermented kvass.
  • Dark toast brew.
  • Umami-rich bread syrups.
  • Fruity bread cordials.
  • Lush bread sodas.
  • And that's just for starters!

    By collecting surplus bread from local bakeries, I'm running workshops for the ultra-creative bartender/chef community in Copenhagen. Collaborating with Copenhagen's DTU Skylab FoodLab we develop our stale-bread-based concoctions that includes low- and non-alcoholic options.

    We'll livestream everything for FREE.
    Everybody should be able to transform their bread into liquid magic. Then we'll launch pop-up events serving ReBread drinks donating all profits to a local food rescue organization.

    Inspire communities globally.
    ReBread Society is designed so bartenders can use the workshops and develop their own recipes to their community's unique bread culture, helping their bakeries save waste and tackling food waste together.

    My Ketel One cocktail.
    I re-imagine the classic bread, butter and jam: finely-ground roasted bread, brewed coffee-style (it's incredible), Ketel One vodka and a cordial of leftover rhubarb jam and butter.

    Join ReBread Society. Feed your thirst, instead of your trash.
