Trigon Snacks saves thousands on electricity costs


Trigon Snacks was formed in 1996 and is home to some of the UK’s favourite brands such as Big D, Planters Nuts and other snacks. In addition, Trigon manufactures private label products for most of the UK’s major food retailers.


Trigon Snacks Ltd. engaged Business Cost Consultants (BCC) to carry out an audit of their utilities in a drive to find ways to reduce energy costs.


BCC’s team of consultants carried out a full review of Trigon’s utility supplies. This analysis generated a comprehensive and detailed report identifying areas where savings could be made.

During BCC’s initial audit, it was noticed that there were a number of errors in the electricity invoices, therefore, BCC renegotiated the existing contract as well as put the electricity contract out to tender to secure a more favourable deal.


BCC successfully recouped over £5,500 for their client due to billing errors. In addition, savings of over £25,000 were made in the first year thanks to more competitive contracts being secured.

“Business Cost Consultants have been invaluable in saving us money on our electricity. They managed to save us a great deal of money and even managed to backdate some of the overcharges and obtain rebates for us.”
