Branston Pickle gets greener

Premier Foods, maker of Branston pickle and Angel Delight, is considering powering some of its plants with wind turbines as it battles against rising energy costs. Like many British manufacturers, Premier has had to put up prices in recent months to compensate for hefty energy bills. Now oil prices are so high it is seeking alternative ways to power its factories. Robert Schofield, Premier’s chief executive, said yesterday: “We are reviewing all ways of taking energy into our business. We are looking at combined heat and power where you recycle your own energy. Those kinds of equations didn’t work on lower levels of oil pricing, but they are starting to look interesting now.” (The Guardian)
