bergamo's bread has a second life

Thanks to the collaboration with Aspan of Bergamo, Biova Bread Beer Bergamo is born.

A craft beer that fights food waste and has a unique taste: the smell of bread and the taste of salt. This beer is produced with bread recovered at km 0 and donated by the bakers of the province of Bergamo.


the commitment of biova and aspan bergamo

"It all begins by recovering bread, a fundamental food of our diet but unfortunately is also one of the most wasted"- explains Massimo Ferrandi, president of Aspan - "thanks to its characteristics, however, bread can be brought to new life, using it in the brewing process "

With our recipe, from 150 kg of recovered bread we obtain 2500 liters of beer, more than 7,500 bottles.

the smell of bread,

the taste of salt

As in all of our recipes, thanks to the presence of bread, 30% of barley malt was saved for the brewing of this Kölsch-inspired lager beer. Fresh, clear, highly drinkable.

Biova Bergamo not only cuts down on waste, but also saves up to 30 percent of raw materials, and at the same time the environment is spared the input of as much as 1365 kg of CO2, equivalent to 5 airline flights between Rome and London.

"The project is based on the synergy with our bakers," Ferrandi continues, "and Biova Project, which will collect the unsold at some bakeries and turn it into craft beer. The product will then be available to participating bakeries."

The characteristic of these beers is to "let the bread speak": classic recipes from the brewing tradition, with a touch of flavor given precisely by the bread; a taste that is striking, at least as much as the goodness of the operation.
