Adande Refrigeration has introduced an easy-to-use guide for operators to help them understand energy labelling with regards to refrigeration.
The manufacturer detailed that distributors can utilise the document to make the case for one refrigerator unit over another, or for when they are looking to give the best advice, and to show what can be gleaned from the data in the label.
Refrigeration runs 24 hours a day, 7 days a week in most cases, and is a high energy user in a kitchen.
The guide, which supports hospitality’s drive to carbon net zero, and in particular the work of the Zero Carbon Forum, explains what the symbols on the energy label mean and how they can be interpreted to give value to hospitality brands.
Adande always aims for efficient refrigeration, and developed ‘hold-the-cold’ technology, which stops cold air spillage otherwise common in traditional refrigeration. Adande drawers are designed to need less energy to run, in part because the insulated containers keeps the cold air with the food. The stable temperature and humidity should reduce food waste by keeping food fresher for longer.
CEO Nigel Bell said “Adande as an organisation seeks to deliver the most value in a sustainable way. With COP26 goals firmly established with a view to reversing the damage of climate change, we wanted to give a helping hand to operators as they strive to become more efficient, reduce waste and use less energy.
“This guide will help hospitality outlets when it comes to purchasing new equipment; the energy label is a great tool to have when making those decisions.”
