Reusing brewery waste in agriculture

Three people holding the responsible business industry leader award

Pursuing its ambition to become a zero-waste operation, Chibuku Products Limited (CPL) in Malawi has initiated a number of projects to develop ways of reusing brewery waste – for example, using waste Chibuku cartons as pots for seedlings or coal ash from brewery boilers to resurface pavements.

To support Malawi's agriculture – a key contributor to the country's economy – CPL collects and dries the spent grains generated through the production of Chibuku beer. This can then be used by local farmers as either animal feed or fertiliser.
