Whitbread puts in market’s second self supply licence application

Hospitality giant Whitbread Group has become the second business customer to apply for a self supply licence in the new water market.

Like first applicant (and now licensee) Greene King, Whitbread has engaged Waterscan to take on responsibility for its retail functions including meter reading, CMOS transactions, wholesaler management and payment handling. Whitbread, which owns the Costa, Premier Inn and Beefeater Grill brands among others, will use its licence to pursue further water efficiency work, drive cost and consumption control, and provide a customer voice at MOSL discussions.
