our vision

Food is extremely valuable! They are worth given attention to. Nevertheless, in Austria, large quantities are wasted or even thrown away every day. But why? There are so many ways to reuse NOT SPOILED food.


Food, and here especially bread, is precious!


For this reason, we have launched „Second bread “, an idea and initiative which aims to give old bread a meaningful purpose.

second bread - bread recycling

The aim of this project is, on the one hand, to raise awareness and to awaken people to the need of handling our food responsibly and, on the other hand, to ensure that as much old bred as possible is integrated into another life cycle.

And this is how it is done:

  • Collect old bred and allow it to dry carefully
  • Bring the old bread to the collection points and throw it in without any packaging in the special containers
  • Farmers periodically collect the old bred from these containers and feed it to animals
