Enhancing Sustainability in Breweries: The Power of Beer to Bags and Ohanafy

Sep 07, 2023

The global call for sustainability has intensified in recent years, with the food and beverage industry at the forefront of this crucial movement. Breweries and distilleries worldwide have already demonstrated commendable commitments to sustainability by repurposing malt bags and redirecting waste to farms. However, the path to sustainability can be challenging to navigate alone. This is precisely why Beer to Bags and Ohanafy have united in their commitment to making a profound impact.

Born from a shared passion for helping breweries introduce sustainable practices and a common origin in North Carolina, Beer to Bags and Ohanafy have forged a powerful partnership. Together, they collaborate in joint marketing initiatives and foster a community of like-minded customers, creating opportunities for businesses that champion sustainable values.

Individually, both companies have their unique approaches to ensuring sustainability is within reach. Beer to Bags stands out as a brand that empowers breweries to reimagine the utility of single-use malt bags by transforming them into trendy totes. Whether a brewery plans to donate malt bags or order retail-ready merchandise, they can feel confident in knowing they are helping the environment when working with Beer to Bags. Emily Neville, the visionary founder behind Beer to Bags, reminds us that “sustainability is not an end goal or something that can really be achieved. A business can embrace, drive, or introduce more sustainable practices, but it's an ongoing pursuit toward a cleaner business model that will never end. Achieving true sustainability would look like having zero operations to not have a carbon footprint at all. We can only seek to reduce and limit our carbon footprint with more sustainable practices.” 

Ohanafy, on the other hand, offers breweries visibility into their operations by capturing data throughout the brewing process, from raw materials to distribution. Ohanafy excels in helping breweries identify areas of inefficiency, losses, and waste. This granular insight enables data-driven decision-making, laying the foundation for breweries to develop their own sustainable programs.

Ohanafy further solidifies itself as an invaluable ally for sustainability through its energy consumption, electricity, and water usage tracking. This real-time tracking enables breweries to identify energy-intensive processes and make adjustments to optimize efficiency. This, in turn, reduces the brewery’s carbon footprint and contributes to a more sustainable operation.

In tandem, Beer to Bags and ohanafy are revolutionizing how the brewing industry approaches sustainability. By offering actionable insights for data-driven decisions and an avenue for grain bag recycling, these partners are quickly supporting breweries in their quest for a more sustainable and environmentally friendly future.

If your brewery or distillery is keen on embracing sustainability, don’t hesitate to reach out to the Ohanafy team today. Together, we can pave the way for a more sustainable tomorrow.
