Established in 1998, Spreyton Fresh is a food manufacturing and wholesaler known for producing and distributing premium quality fresh fruit and juices.
In its early days, the business became synonymous with fantastic juice that tasted just like fruit, grown from their own orchards using regenerative agriculture practices.
In 2011, the business took the next step and launched Spreyton Cider Co, and in 2012 constructed their own cider manufacturing facility and cellar door.
Spreyon's product range now includes apple cider vinegar, ginger beer, and cider.
HOW WE HELPED
As a large business with high energy demands, Spreyton Fresh engaged Choice Energy to see if we could lower their energy costs and navigate market increases.
A dedicated Choice Energy consultant, ran an assessment of their expenditure and usage to see if there were any optimisations that could be made.
Through expertise and negotiation, the business received a range of positive benefits.
We found working with Jackson from Choice Energy a very easy and straight forward process. He was knowledgeable and was able to provide us the assistance which we required to be able to reduce our energy costs across our business.
We would have no hesitation in recommending Choice Energy to other businesses looking to restructure their energy costs.
With the energy consultant's expertise, the below benefits and outcomes were delivered for the business:
- Discovery: It was identified the business had not been recieving a solar feed-in tariff since installing solar on their roof, the consultant went on to broker a feed-in tariff with the existing retailer, including the backdate of a solar credit.
- Strategic negotiation: A new electricity fixed, retail contract with a new energy supplier was secured, including an optimised solar feed-in tariff, to avoid increasing costs.
- Insights: Choice Energy recommended the business apply for the Tasmania Energy Relief Grant; the business was later approved for an $18,000 grant putting money right back into the business.
- Ongoing optimisation: As a Choice Energy client, the business will benefit from ongoing account management and optimisation through our shield metering and monitoring service.
