Rising electricity costs coupled with higher fuel costs will soon leave butcheries with no option but to increase meat prices.
Consumers already reeling under high debt burden and recently announced higher interest rates will have less and less disposable income to spend on high-grade meat products.
Butchers can contain costs on two fronts iro meat display fridges viz:
a. reduce the electricity consumption of these units by up to 20% per unit
b. increase shelf-life of all meat on display by between 3 and 5 days
By installing the best available night blinds to the meat display fridges/freezers/wrap arounds to reduce energy consumption as well as extend display shelf-life.
