FST Farm 2 Fork - The Energy Efficient Food System

From the farm to the distribution center to the restaurant or grocery market, energy efficiency can plan an important role in an equitable and sustainable food system.

Food processing facilities, grocery stores and restaurants have some of the highest energy demand, per square foot, in Oregon. Saving energy means fresh food on the table, better margins for food-based business and ultimately, lower costs to customers.

Where does energy figure into a sustainable food chain? Crops can be efficiently irrigated to save energy and water, refrigeration systems can be managed to minimize spoilage, and food service equipment can be high-efficiency and well-maintained.

Find out how food producers and retailers can reduce their energy usage and reap other benefits when they use energy efficient equipment and practices in their operations.
