Commercial Catering Equipment Labels

Commercial Catering Equipment Label Changes

The European Directive 2009/125/EC outlines a minimum energy performance standards and labeling requirements for products which have significant volume of sales in environmental impact. It also targets products which have significant potential for improvement through design. Certain products, including refrigeration products (and professional catering cabinets in particular), sold within the EU must are required to reach certain standards mentioned in the Directive.

As professional catering cabinets are deemed to account for a substantial amount of energy use within the EU, identifying the most efficient products and appliances would be beneficial to all sectors. An initial study of refrigerated equipment was carried out in 2011, this includes professional cabinets, ice-makers, water dispensers, dessert and beverage machines, industrial process chillers, minibars, wine storage appliances and packaged condensing units among others. Most of the products in Lot 1 need to be labelled, however, several could not be easily labelled and so needed further investigation. A full list and information on the labelling of four out of the five products was released by the Commission in June 2013.

If you are confused about the European Directive in your workplace, or how it effects your catering appliances, please give Red Squared a call.
