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).

Chill the Bill: Navigating refrigeration energy savings with Maestro

Energy efficiencies and sustainability have been the name of the game in the F&B sector. But if you're managing a food production or cold storage facility, where efficiency has been the name of the game, are there still quick energy saving wins to be made?
On this episode, we share new perspectives on discovering refrigeration energy savings and the opportunities to automate them, including how our work on 'Maestro' as a machine-learning service can realise these efforts.
