Independent Retailers Need Better Fridge Policy

A refrigeration consultant has warned that independent convenience stores are being left behind in terms of technology and energy savings.

Daniel Clark, Managing Director of Hamilton-Clark Ltd, which specialises in feasibility, design, management, energy efficiency and sustainability, said: “With the independent convenience store owner, the power-base is somewhat different (to larger chain stores).”

“No matter how big or small your store, or how many sites you have, the benefits of better refrigeration are the same.”

“But while the multiples are in a position to push the refrigeration industry to provide better solutions, there is a danger that independent stores can be left out of the action, utilising solutions that comprise of yesterday’s less efficient technologies and lack forward thinking.

“This places unnecessary financial pressures on these already highly challenged businesses.”

“The fact is that many independent businesses understand very little about refrigeration and the options available to them because, there is little publicity advising them about the large array of highly effective adaptations that can be made that provide massive energy savings.”

Eco-monitor are specialists in working with Independent retailers on helping them to reduce their energy consumption and costs. For further information please call us on 0845 680 9939.
