Raise your bread to the next level


Sourdough bread upcycling: from sourdough bread to beer

Working together to better nourish and protect the planet

This is our mission at Lesaffre and to answer it, day after day, we work with our teams of experts to support our customers’ innovative projects. These co-developments open the field to numerous breadmaking trials.

This is how, our upcycling project was born. Thanks to our partnership with a local Belgian brewer, we are now able to transform our bread wastes into beer.
