Power savers

One of New Zealand’s largest exporters is set to save more than $2 million a year and enhance its global reputation as a sustainable producer through a company-wide energy management programme.
EECA Business has announced it would support the initiative over two years to help ANZCO generate long-term energy savings in its New Zealand plants.
With annual sales of $1.25 billion, ANZCO Foods processes and markets New Zealand beef and lamb products around the world. The firm employs more than 3,000 staff worldwide and has 11 meat processing plants in New Zealand.
This programme will target a reduction in its processing plant energy use by 25GWh, returning ongoing annual savings of $2.45 million after two years.  
EECA Business general manager Ian Niven says that making better use of its energy will provide far-reaching benefits for the company and congratulated the company on its vision.
“By taking a lead in energy efficiency, ANZCO is making significant energy cost savings and signalling to its customers that it is committed to sustainable production,” he says.
