Beer is 90- to- 95-percent water and water is used in every step of the brewing process. Diminishing aquifers and reservoirs have left one in seven people on the planet without safe drinking water.

Southern Africa has seen a mushrooming of the brewery industry with both global and craft brands gaining momentum in a multi-billion industry, said to create jobs that will empower rural communities.

In the beer and cider process, the total amount of water in the recipe cannot be altered, and thus has a limit to how much this concept, can be used to lower a brand’s total water footprint.

Wastewater, sludge and effluents are the negative products from the brewing process. The water and waste constitutes a practical problem – water consumption, treatment and disposal remain critical from an environmental and economic perspective.
