We exist to make food retail ecosystems better for the food they carry, the people they serve and the planet we all live in.
Flō Energy Solutions is a company with big ambitions—to turn all of our customers into a ‘top 20’ list of the world’s most energy-efficient food retailers.
Since 1998 we’ve honed our credentials solving the unique space conditioning challenges of supermarkets. Now our solutions are in
demand across all types of North American food retailers.
Formerly known as CES (Consolidated Energy Solutions), we’ve rebranded to Flō Energy Solutions to better reflect our evolution and dedication to helping our clients create smart, healthy and sustainable environments, ultimately protecting the integrity of the food supply and improving the customer experience.
Food retail is changing faster than ever before
Case in point, store designs are becoming increasingly more complex as retailers try to balance keeping up with what customers want and the enormous pressure to become more sustainable.
Looking at energy consumption, for instance, buildings in food retail reported the highest energy intensity of any sector. In fact, energy remains the food retail industry’s second largest operating expense behind labor. One only has to look at energy consumption to grasp why food retail needs innovators, problem solvers and value creators—now more than ever—who can help them profitably navigate the rapidly evolving terrain to achieve their operational vision and sustainability mandates.
Enter Flō Energy Solutions.
We make a better way
Better for the food
Our superior Multi-Path dehumidification technology improves food safety and freshness by guaranteeing the perfect conditions in any climate, reducing food loss to help create a more sustainable food supply chain. From a technical perspective, we achieve this by reducing coil frosting and case loading to increase the efficiency and temperature stability of the refrigeration system, while the value creation outcome helps to lower food prices.
Better for people
Our system expertise results in shopper comfort throughout the store. Not only do we help food retailers offer high quality fresh food, but we also play a key role in creating operational efficiencies that translate to greater shopping value for the people they serve.
Better for the planet
We strongly believe in environmental stewardship, innovating for the greater good. That’s why we help food retailers sharpen their focus on energy efficiency strategies that reduce their carbon footprint, prioritizing projects that maximize performance while minimizing environmental impact.
At Flō, all team members are given paid volunteer days each year to give back to their communities in ways that are meaningful to them.
