Titan and ARC 2 provide a fresh lighting look for the UK’s premier fresh food provider

Nualight together with resellers Cross Group help the UK’s premier fresh produce provider – Total Produce to update their lighting and reduce their energy costs, creating a bright, safe and comfortable working environment.

Total Produce, the UK’s premier fresh produce provider, trade out of 21 locations across the UK in addition to over 100 international facilities.

Joe Conway, the Cross Group, outlines the project, “This recent project in Spalding consists of an LED upgrade in the extension to the existing depot and LED throughout the new refrigerated process and storage areas. There was an ideal Nualight solution for each area. Titan and Arc 2 met all the criteria, providing superior light performance and potential lighting energy savings of up to 60% in the existing areas, which were previously utilising fluorescent fittings. In the new areas, the Arc 2 and Titan products were supplied with on-board sensors and controls to harvest future savings.”

Conor Keown, Total Produce, Head of Facilities Management, concludes, “At Total Produce we are committed to reducing our environmental footprint and this initiative is part of that effort. The LED lighting will save on energy costs and so far, the installation is meeting expectations.  In addition, the enhanced light level provides a bright and safer working environment.”

John Sutton, Senior Product Manager, Nualight, “This project is another great example of how LED lighting can be applied to warehouse and storage areas to the benefit of business owners, by reducing operational costs and to workers with the increased light quality, it is good to know we have helped Total Produce in their commitment to reducing their environmental footprint.”

Nualight launch Red-Tone (RT) Variants of Orion

Additions to the Orion range of LED refrigeration lighting, from Nualight, bring new depths to refrigerated meat displays.

You’re in the supermarket. Have you ever considered what attracts you to a piece of fresh meat? There are key factors at play. Unlike fruit and vegetable shopping, where you can touch, feel and smell, fresh meat shopping relies on the visual cues we receive from the produce.

Instinctively we look to see how pigmented, flush and red the meat is. This information tells us how healthy and safe the food would be to consume. In the right light, we can assess how fresh the produce is and the time before it spoils.

Retailers must display these time sensitive products under the correct lighting to communicate the freshness of the meat to enable customers to make the right purchase decisions to achieve a quick timely sale.

Best light for customer choices

To help retailers and display case manufacturers provide the best lighting conditions, Nualight have now added Red-Tone (RT) variants to their industry leading Orion range of LED refrigeration lighting. Orion Red -Tone (RT) solutions are specially formulated to enhance fresh meat display cases, picking up and strengthening the natural reds found in the products.

Furthermore, the Orion range contains no UV and IR and does not generate excess heat. This ensures packaging will not fade or create a barrier to the communication of important information. Orion, covers a wider colour spectrum than traditional fluorescents and provides an environment where the true colours of the meat are reflected enabling customers to analyse this valuable information.

Combine these benefits with the high performance features of the existing range, including industry leading efficacies, 50K hour life times and fast delivery times for stocked products, retailers and manufacturers alike are offered a win/win solution.
