Catering

If you run a catering business, you’ll be well aware that energy bills can be costly. With a high reliance on gas and electricity, reducing your business energy costs can seem a challenge.

At Business Electricity Prices, we help businesses like yours find cheaper energy deals quickly and easily. By answering just a few questions on your energy usage, you compare the latest business energy prices in minutes.

Why Switch Energy Suppliers for your Catering Business?

For caterers both large and small, it’s worth shopping around to compare business energy contracts regularly. Businesses who fail to switch energy suppliers can often be left facing expensive rollover contracts.

These are the tariffs businesses are changed to at the end of their contract if they do not renew or switch. Rollover contracts are costly, and can you leave you locked into an expensive rate for 2 or more years.

It’s important to note when your business energy contract is up for renewal. Switching to a cheaper deal in your renewal window can potentially save you hundreds of pounds each year.

At Business Electricity Prices, we’re dedicated to helping businesses reduce their energy bills. Our expert team can help you find a deal that matches the specific needs of your business.

Energy Saving Tips for Catering Businesses

Affordable utilities are only the first step in saving money on your bills. There are many ways you can reduce the electricity and gas you use.

Top rated energy-efficient appliances can use as much as 50% less electricity and water than lower-rated. They can be more expensive but save you much more money over the long-term.

A great way to measure the energy you use is by using a smart meter or an energy monitor. Record your smart meter readings at the same time every day. You can then see how much power you have used over the previous 24-hour period.

Preparing to reduce waste

Becoming a zero-waste organisation means doing your part to reduce harm to the environment. But reducing waste can also save your business money. It’s a win-win!

One of the best ways to reduce energy waste is by carefully looking at the energy you use. Running a kitchen uses a lot of electricity as a necessity. But, there can be ways to reduce what you need. You need to involve your staff so that the whole team is on board.

A few suggestions of quick wins:

  • Check the fridge temperature. If the fridge is colder or warmer than it needs to be, you are wasting energy. The fridge should be between 2.5 and 4.5 °C. A freezer should be between -18 and -15 degrees °C.
  • Make sure ventilation is adequate. This can save money on heating and cooling costs.
  • Use the right pan for the hob. Sticking a small pan on a large hob wastes heat energy.
  • Boil smart. Use a high heat setting to boil liquids on the stove. Once reached, reduce heat to maintain a consistent low boil.
