A butcher’s energy costs can account for up to 5% of turnover. Electricity consumption represents around 70% of these costs. As you’ll know from experience, refrigeration is a real energy guzzler but is essential for storage, smoking or ageing rooms. In addition, much heat is needed for heating, hot water as well as cooking, frying and baking can be added to this. And if you also offer a party and catering service alongside your hot food counter, this drives up energy costs even more.
This is where effective energy procurement by Johannes Schuetze AG comes into play, helping you save up to 30% on your electricity and gas costs. The principle behind it is both logical and clever: We pool the energy demands of various butchers and businesses into one large volume. We then put out a call to tender on the energy market when the conditions are favourable. The energy supplier who offers the best terms is then awarded the tender.
