Catering energy saving tips
The most successful businesses are always looking for ways to reduce their overheads.
Here are some ways you can increase energy efficiency:
A great deal of energy wastage can take place in the kitchens.
You should identify inefficiencies and discuss improvements with staff. Common inefficiencies include lighting, leaving equipment switched on or left on standby mode. Large savings can also be made by not allowing heating/cooling units to get too hot/cold. Many businesses fail to use dishwashers efficiently too.
Educating your staff on the importance of efficiency helps reduce energy consumption. Getting them on board with your plans will ensure you're doing everything you can to reduce costs.
Make a habit of energy efficiency
Energy efficiency shouldn’t be treated as a short-term solution to expensive energy bills. To maximise profits, it should be central to the ethos of your business.
It’s recommended that you choose equipment with high efficiency ratings. This will help reduce energy wastage. A good chef will advocate for high-quality pots and pans. But it may be worth listening. They can save both time and money when cooking.
Cheap products may seem cost-effective at first, but they have high running costs. This translates to most things. Most notably, LED lights are slightly higher in price than traditional incandescent bulbs. LED lights use 90% less energy and can last 25 times longer .
