Food and beverage processing is a highly energy dependent practice ranking in the top 5 highest cost line items. Production facilities must keep up with a fairly quick production cycle – including freezing, baking, storing, processing, heating, distillation, pasteurization, and packaging; all of which can be burdensome on an electricity bill.
Seasonality is also a big factor considering facilities in which the food articles or their ingredients are manufactured require cooling in the summer and heating in the winter.
Given the perishable nature of the products as it relates to food safety, companies are required to adhere to rigorous health and safety regulations set by organizations like Health Canada and the FDA. These are often much stricter than regulations set by bodies in the United States or Europe. As a result, Ontario-based manufacturers can have a difficult time cutting production costs without sacrificing product quality or safety.
Demand Response Programs that provide economic incentives for participants to reduce consumption can be a challenge for many food and beverage manufacturers to implement. Altering production schedules or on-demand shutdowns generate a risk of not adhering to the health and safety regulations and therefore, do not present feasible measures to reduce energy costs.
