Understanding that the launch of the directive will raise many questions for operators, distributors and manufacturers alike, the Go Green Debate will aim to address some of the key operational issues around the directive.

Roberts commented: “The new directive is set to change the foodservice landscape and its implementation will widen the scope for bigger and better technological advancements.

“The panel will also discuss the need for the directive, who its affects and whether it’s something that operators, want, need or will come to rely on when making future purchasing decisions.”

The experts will also address questions such as ‘What are the cost implications?’ and ‘What levels of performance can they expect from a refrigeration unit in the different category ratings?’

Those keen to have their say on the topic can participate in the debate by sending their questions to or tweet @Gramukgreen using the #TheGoGreenDebate.
