There’s a market for everything

I’ve often wondered what happens to the inordinate amount of bread that gets thrown away every day in Dubai.

Every Lebanese or Indian restaurant or takeaway meal comes with enough bread to sustain a family for several weeks – I’d always assumed the leftovers get chucked in the bin.

Parking near Fishermen’s Beach on Saturday, I spotted this man collecting piles of Arabic bread and putting them into sacks. Next to him were about twenty bags filled with stale naan bread.

So now I know what happens to at least some of the bread – but what happens after it’s been put into sacks afterwards is still unclear!
