A Suffolk animal foods business has received a £17,000 grant to invest in its sustainable energy strategy.

Kiezebrink UK, based in Bury St Edmunds, was awarded the funding from the Business Energy Efficiency (BEE) Anglia project to increase it processing and freezer storage facility.

BEE, which is funded by the European Regional Development Fund, says the energy savings gained by implementing this project will amount to 37.7 CO2e per year and bring cost savings of £7,500.

Operations director at Kiezebrink UK, Alasdair Gordon, 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.”
