Food and Drink

Energy constitutes a significant cost to the food and drinks industry especially in energy intensive processes such as cooking, cooling and even lighting of work spaces. If the energy used is fossil based then there is also the matter of considering the associated environmental impacts in terms of carbon emissions, and the costs associated with climate change legislation.

Many food and drinks organizations have already put considerable effort into reducing their energy use and most of the low hanging opportunities have been taken; the opportunities that remain becoming harder to identify, prioritize and implement in a cost effective manner.

How can SLR help?

SLR helps organizations reduce the cost burden of increasing energy prices and climate change legislation. We provide tailored solutions that mitigate the risks and build competitive advantage.
