Nualight to supply LEDs for UK Co-operative stores

9 August 2011 12.00 BST

(UK) - Irish LED lighting manufacturer Nualight has secured a €2 million deal with food retailer The Co-operative to supply LED lighting technology for freezers and ice-cream cabinets in 800 stores across the UK.

Nualight's Porto lighting will be installed in the doors in low-temperature merchandising cabinets and its Alto canopy lighting will be installed in ice-cream display cabinets across Co-operative stores.  The Nualight products were chosen to help meet The Co-operative's sustainable, lower-carbon retail targets as well as vastly improve the look of products on display.

The food retail industry in the UK has already transitioned to doors on frozen food displays as an energy saving measure and is beginning to apply the same measure to chillers.  However, this has led to problems with dark spots across the face of food displays where the light cannot reach. Nualight's Porto door lighting is proven to produce exceptionally bright and uniform lighting for freezers and chillers with doors. For high-margin food displays such as ice cream and luxury desserts, it is vital that the lighting also brings out the richness of colour in the packaging. The products selected by The Co-operative offer high CRI, boosting colour vibrancy in the products on display.

"Nualight's LED lighting will significantly reduce the energy consumption of our freezers and ice-cream cabinets while generally improving brightness and colour to better showcase our frozen food products," comments Alex Pitman, Energy and Carbon Manager at The Co-operative Group. "We are confident the new lighting will increase customer footfall to these displays.

The Nualight transaction with The Co-operative follows a similar Nualight deal with Tesco in the UK last year as well as with the ‘Fresh N Easy' chain of stores in the USA.  Other European retailers who are benefiting from Nualight's LED technology and expertise include Morrisons, M&S, Sainsbury's, Migros, Tengelmann and Coop Switzerland.
