Bundaberg Chillies

The facility is located in Bundaberg and supplies fresh chillies as well
as puree products that are manufactured in the on-site processing plant.
The facility includes a warehouse, dispatch centre, refrigerated cold rooms
and the processing plant area.
An energy audit report focused on the refrigeration and air conditioning
facilities as the major users of energy. Refrigeration to the cold rooms is
provided by a number of condensing units placed outside the main facility.
The facility is also serviced by two air conditioners as well as three fluid chillers.
