文字稿

Stale bread. Every year it’s estimated that Austria throws away enough bread to feed over a million people. But the leftover bread at this shop isn’t destined for the bin. It’s being made into beer – part of efforts to prevent food waste.

不新鮮的麵包。據估計,奧地利人每年扔掉的麵包夠養活一百多萬人。但這家店賣剩下的麵包不會被丟到垃圾箱,而是被用來釀造啤酒,這正是釀酒者為防止食物浪費所做的努力。

Tobias Judmaier, food activist
In our little shop that we have in Vienna, we have each day a couple of buns left over which, as such is not a problem. But if you look at it – throughout the month, you’ll realise it accumulates and what else could you do with this leftover bread? So we started getting creative and thought of beer.

托比亞斯·榮德麥爾 倡導節約食物人士
“在我們維也納的小店裡,每天會剩下幾個小圓麵包,這並不成問題。但如果按每月的剩餘量來看,你就會發現積少成多,那麼就會想還能如何利用這些剩麵包呢?所以我們開始發揮創意,想到用它來制造啤酒。”

Making beer out of bread is an old tradition which dates back to Ancient Egypt.

用麵包制造啤酒是一個傳統手藝,其歷史可追溯到古埃及。

This is a niche product. It can’t compete with the huge breweries. But its producers say it’s about raising awareness of the problem of food waste.

這是一個小眾產品,不能和大型釀酒廠的啤酒相提並論。但它的生產者們說,這樣做是為了增強人們對食物浪費問題的認識

So every time they crack open a bottle of bread beer these Austrians know they’re taking a small step towards fighting food waste.

所以每打開一瓶“麵包啤酒”,這些奧地利人就知道他們在打擊食品浪費方面邁出了一小步。
