WEBINAR on 30 June 2021 starting at 2 PM DK time / 1 PM UK time

Efficiency is the name of the game for UK’s food and beverage makers - in every process and in every resource. Being more productive while using less energy has never been a greater imperative. The food and drinks sector is the biggest manufacturing industry in the UK – larger than automotive and aerospace combined. Several initiatives are ongoing to improve the energy efficiency in the UK food and drinks industry.

Danish solutions play a role in improving energy efficiency in British companies – but with increased focus on energy efficiency, new opportunities emerge. This webinar aims to showcase such new opportunities and to debate the interest for further joint steps to approach the British food and drinks industry further from Danish side – an initiative which the Danish embassy / Trade Council in London is prepared to take – in collaboration with strong UK partners and networks of Danish companies.

Join this webinar to hear about the status of energy efficiency in the British food and drinks industry – and learn of new initiatives, methods and solutions being promoted at company and industry level. Listen to experience from companies as well as industry associations and supporting entities.
