Unbelievable waste! This photo taken in July of at least 50 loaves left outside the Brick House Bakery demonstrates a lack of social conscience. Why not donate them to food charities??

maybe they were a batch which failed - sometimes they have issues with fridges etc. They're pretty active on social media (twitter / Insta) so you could ask them? If they are throwing it out I agree that some kind of donation process would be good - but given they rarely seem to have bread left when you go in to buy later in the day i'd be surprised!

They definitely had a power/fridge issue a while back which meant they had to throw away a large amount of raw ingredients (although I think that was earlier than July), but not sure if that would have affected the bread. +1 for asking them direct on social media - the owner is very active there and seems to be very hot on things like plastic-free packaging, so I'm sure will engage.

There are many reasons why this food may have been thrown out - including possible contamination or the inclusion of the 'wrong' ingredients or mix. This is a high level of simple wastage - an uneconomic level if repeated, so I would suspect a good (understandable) reason for this. If it is a one off (and the bread was OK to eat) it is likely that the Bakery didn't have the necessary contacts to find a good home for it - which again suggests this may be an unusual event.

This is a question for them, rather than speculation on the forum

People need to stop doing this on the forum go in the shop and ask why there’s so many loaves by the bins if you’re not happy with the reply then come on here

Agree. Stop being a reactionary knee-jerker and enquire within. This is a local and responsible business, owned by local people. Do you reckon in all honesty they chuck products (which equals money) away for the hell of it.

No, I doubt it.

a totally moronic post. Speak to the bakery if you care that much. Otherwise stop stirring trouble.

I agree. Find out the reason for it first and if it isn't satisfactory, by all means raise it on a public forum but posting this sort of thing can damage businesses unfairly. Otherwise, you run the risk of just looking like you want to be "right-on".

I agree too, but it's pretty much par for the course on here.

Total idiot...
They posted a heart felt Instagram post saying their fridge had broken in the heat and it was utterly soul destroying.
Maybe ask next time rather than have a completely illogical knee jerk reaction..
