Welcome to F&B Sound Bites - a podcast on hot topics, trends and challenges for professionals in the engine room behind the Food and Beverage industry hosted by Hamish McCook.

The food and beverage industry is under increasing pressure - margins are getting tighter, consumers more savvy and demanding, we're being told to produce more, be more efficient, use less energy, emit less carbon, be more accurate...be smarter. Can you relate?

All this 'stuff' but we still only have 24 hours in a day, a five day working week and 45 or so working weeks in a year to make it happen. But it doesn't have to be hard. Sometimes all you need is that little seed of an idea to bring about change. 

That's why Beca has started F&B Sound Bites. In this podcast we give you direct access to some of the best in the business. Professionals we are fortunate enough to work with in and outside Beca who, together, have years of experience on all range of food and beverage industry challenges (and beyond).

How green buildings are transforming F&B facilities

What's a green building? What certifies one? And why would a F&B facility choose to build one? Today we're talking with Ethan Duff - Senior Building Scientist at Beca, to share about his award-winning work with Cloud Bay Wineries, and how developing a green building has supported their decarbonisation efforts and elevated their standing as a business strongly committed to sustainability.
Together with Hamish McCook and guest host Kim Featherstone, tune in to listen how green buildings can transform the operational outcomes for all types of F&B facilities.
