Redstar Food Service

Electricity procurement savings.

Redstar Food Service is a food and beverages distributor company based out of Southampton.

Redstar Food Service Ltd is a member of Confex buying group of independent wholesalers, delivering quality food, drink, packaging and catering products to chefs and caterers since 2008.

Redstar Food Service’s reputation for excellence has secured their position as one of the leading wholesale distributors across the care, education, leisure and hospitality sectors.

The client partnered with Inspired when their electricity contract was due for renewal, interested in both potential savings and ongoing price stability.

When the market allowed, Inspired went out to tender to various electricity suppliers to source the best options available for the client.

Redstar Food Service


We worked closely with the team at Redstar Food Service, in order to understand the needs and requirements of the business.

Whilst Redstar Food Service’s main focus was securing potential savings with a new electricity contract, they were also looking for price stability.

Inspired went to tender and provided the client with various contract options, for either 1, 2 or 3-year fixed periods.

After discussion we secured Redstar Food Service a 24-month contract with a new supplier, saving them £8,000 per annum.

This contract also provided the client with a level of price stability, allowing for more accurate budgeting, which is especially important in the current climate as the economy recovers from the COVID-19 pandemic.

Inspired is providing ongoing support to the client, working hand in hand to organise an increase in their Agreed Supply Capacity (KVA level).
