Self Raising Flour - 32 Kg for free

I have 2 x 16 Kg of Self raising flour from the UK - our supplier sent the wrong sacks, they are just out of date (that's the UK "Best Before" date not "consume before") so it's fine to bake with, and my supplier told me to bin it or give it away.

Free to collect from the British Cheese Centre in the Viadukt market in Zürich, or it'll be thrown away this weekend.

Unfortunately we only bake with gluten-free, but I'd hate it to go to waste.... I'll ask a friend...

Been baking (and eating) too much, perhaps?

Mate, self raising flour is like rocking horse sh*t here, repackage it in small, dinky, recyled packaging ("Freshly packed in Zürich") and triple the price!
