Bakkavor is a leading international manufacturer of fresh prepared foods. Founded in 1986, they now supply over 5,000 products to the world’s largest retailers. Seeking to improved lighting quality and reduce electrical operating costs and environmental impact, it engaged with Remark to see how energy efficient lighting could help.


  • Working around a live operating site whilst keeping disruption to a minimum
  • The aged infrastructure of the building
  • Adapt the existing designs to suit to the building’s structural support

Actions and Solutions

Remark stepped up to the task and installed a total of 158 LED lights within three of its UK sites.
Within the first site, in order to improve the lighting quality and eliminate the risk of fire within the warehouse, Remark replaced the old 400watt high bay light fittings with new 150watt LED versions. A number of light fittings were located directly above the storage racking systems were also relocated to new positions. We also installed new lighting for the area as previously little or no lighting existed and posed a possible health & safety issue.

Located throughout the high care & low care areas of the 2nd sites, new replacement LED products were installed to improve the overall lighting quality and eliminate the maintenance team’s constant lamp replacements due to the existing types running 24 hours a day and failing.

Furthermore, within the loft area, the existing light fittings were not designed to provide loft area lighting, changes to the structure of the building resulted in large number of light fittings remaining energised for no reason. Remark installed replacement LED lamps to the fittings and installed motion detection sensors to automatically operate and illuminate the loft areas when the maintenance teams were in the local areas.

Located within the 1st floor board room, a number of LED lighting panels was installed to replace the old type. This resulted in a cleaner, brighter and more energy efficient lighting being provided to one of the most important meeting rooms in the building.

Finally, at the 3rd site Remark replaced the old 400watt lamps with new 200watt LED versions. This provided a significant improvement with the local lighting levels and provided the installation with a greatly reduced energy efficiency.
