Louisa Ziane

Co-Founder, Toast Ale

Louisa co-founded Toast Ale, which tackles food waste by using surplus bread to make beer, in 2015. She is the Chief Operating Officer, managing the company’s commitment to people, planet and profit, and ensuring the brand is true to its purpose: to end food waste over a cheeky pint.

She has worked on climate change mitigation for 15 years, including as a consultant with Carbon Trust, and is a certified management accountant and B Corp Ambassador. She trained as a Climate Reality Leader with Al Gore in 2021 and has delivered guest lectures at City University, LSE and Oxford Said Business School.

Louisa speaks about carbon footprint/measurement/net zero and food waste/circular economy, in the context of entrepreneurship and/or beer!
