Harlees Fish and Chips tackles climate change
Article Date: 2019-12-11
Harlees Fish and Chips in Verwood, Dorset, have reduced their carbon footprint by a whopping 10.6 tonnes of carbon per year.
The family run business has invested into new frying technology via KFE and solar energy at the Verwood shop on Manor Road, part funded by a grant awarded by Low Carbon Dorset.
The new frying range built and designed by KFE and Kiremko, the market leader in Great Britain for frying systems and ranges. The new range contains high efficiency engineering with a gas efficiency level of 94%, the highest in Europe. These advances in technology also reduce cooking oil waste to up to 40%. The installation of 6 kWp solar panels (PV) to the shop also aids the reduction in the shops carbon footprint, supplying any additional energy to the national grid. These investments have reduced the shops carbon footprint by 10.6 tonnes of carbon per year!
Richard, a Director of Harlees said ‘As a local business we need to do our bit to reduce our impact on our local community and beyond. After 17 years it was time to invest in a new frying range. Not only do these changes help the environment but the efficiencies will also shorten cooking times and increase quality’.
The business is reviewing other ways it can improve its impact on the environment, from changes to packaging to products served. You can keep up to date with Harlees news via their website www.harlees.co.uk or following @harleesfish on socials.
