Burra Foods' manufacturing plant at Korumburra

Gippsland-based dairy processor Burra Foods is the latest manufacturing enterprise to enter into a large-scale renewable corporate power purchase agreement with Melbourne-based energy retailer Flow Power.

The ten-year deal gives Burra Foods access to power from the Ararat Wind Farm, and is expected to deliver annual savings in excess of 20 per cent by offsetting grid electricity consumption.

According to Burra Foods General Manager Supply Chain and Manufacturing, Stewart Carson: “As a business, Burra Foods has very bold sustainability targets and we have invested heavily in renewable energy solutions that fit our usage demand.”

“Partnering with Flow Power and sourcing a steady supply of clean, renewable energy is a major step toward our facility being powered by 100 per cent renewable energy. We remain committed to playing our part in sustainable dairy manufacturing.”

During peak periods, Burra Foods can receive up to 1.5 million litres of fresh farm milk for processing every day. The dairy manufacturer required an energy solution that would support its rigorous production schedule, improve its energy efficiency and provide price certainty.

“Traditionally, the dairy industry is a heavy power user that requires a significant amount of power at all stages of the supply chain,” said Flow Power MD Matthew van der Linden. “This agreement will deliver secure cost-efficient power for the long term, without compromising on Burra Foods’ sustainability goals.”
