Last chance for red meat companies to save big on energy bills

Any firm involved in the slaughter, cutting, processing or refrigerated storage of red meat has a small window of opportunity between now and 28 August to save up to 92% (that’s not a typo) on their energy bills by applying for membership of the British Meat Processors’ Climate Change Levy Scheme.

You don’t have to be a BMPA member to benefit and you can participate on a site-by-site basis

Firms that are accepted for membership will be able to make savings for the next 5 years of up to 92% on electricity, 81% on Natural Gas and 77% on LPG.

But, the scheme will be closed to new members after 28 August this year, and this is now the last time new members will be able to join before it ends completely in 2025.

This opportunity is open to both companies that are new to the scheme and to companies already part of it who have added new facilities since joining.

How it works

You make energy savings at your plant and, so long as you hit the agreed targets, you’ll receive a huge discount on your energy bills. Not only will you use less energy, but what you do use will be a lot cheaper.

BMPA can advise you on whether you’d be eligible for the scheme and then help you get set up and guide you through what needs to be done via our helpline. Anyone interested should contact BMPA@slrconsulting.com for information and an application pack.

David Lindars from @BMPA_INFO said over 120 🚛 carrying 🇬🇧 meat were sat at Rotterdam port, incl one transporting 🐖 which had been stuck there for nearly 3 weeks since 1 Jan.

“There are huge issues with a system that is fundamentally not designed for a short shelf-life food.”

The scale of the unfolding crisis at borders for British meat exporters is explained by BMPA's @DavidLindars in this @politicshome article. The system is already creaking under the strain and companies are losing hundreds of thousands of pounds every day.
