Grant Helps Kiezebrink To Grow Without Increasing Environmental Impact

Bury St Edmunds’ Kiezebrink UK has been awarded a grant for energy saving freezer condensing units to help them to maximise energy efficiency as they grow.

Kiezebrink UK is one of the largest suppliers of exotic animal food and raw meat diets in the UK and has been awarded grant funding from the Business Energy Efficiency (BEE) Anglia project to increase their processing and freezer storage facility.

Having completed an independent energy audit, Kiezebrink UK were awarded a grant for £17,000. The energy savings gained by implementing this project will amount to 37.7 CO2e per year, and an annual cost saving of £7,500. This will support future growth within their business, while working to protect the environment.

Alasdair Gordon, Operations Director at Kiezebrink UK, said: “Without the funding supplied by BEE Anglia we wouldn’t have been able to afford the extra cost of installing energy saving freezer condensing units, frequency inverters and LED lighting. Our aim is to grow the company without having any increased impact on the environment. Hopefully implementing these energy saving techniques has helped us achieve this goal.”

Cllr. Matthew Hicks, Cabinet Member for Environment and Public Protection, Suffolk County Council, added: “I am delighted that we have been able to support Kiezebrink UK to enhance their sustainability – both economically and environmentally via this scheme. The Business Energy Efficiency Anglia project offers all businesses the independent assurance that these savings will really be achieved.”

The BEE Anglia project is funded by the European Regional Development Fund and is being delivered across the region through a partnership of Suffolk County Council, Norfolk County Council, Groundwork and NWES.

The project has three core offers that have been designed to help businesses reduce carbon and save money using independent advice, funding and recognition for their efforts.
