The carbon trusts says the food and drink processing industry is the fourth highest industrial energy user in the UK. In 2010, it consumed nearly 37TWh (enough energy to power 125,000 homes for nearly 15 years) and emitted around 11 million tonnes of carbon dioxide into the atmosphere. Energy consumption in the sector could be considerably reduced by implementing simple and effective energy efficiency measures, reducing carbon emissions and cutting the costs for businesses.
