Best Practice for Managing FOG
To ensure that your commercial kitchen abides by the correct waste legislation and that your establishment is able to deal with grease and oils appropriately, we offer a comprehensive solution that can be tailored to the needs of your business.
Managing FOGs in a commercial kitchen
To help ensure that your commercial kitchen is able to deal with FOGs correctly, our team of grease management experts have put together a list of tips:
Check the water temperature of your dishwasher. If the water is too hot, grease will flow through a grease trap before it cools and congeals. A lower water temperature could even save you money on your utility bills.
It is important that commercial kitchens recycle waste oil wherever possible. Make sure that the person who removes waste oil is a registered waste carrier, and provides you with a legitimate waste removal notice. For more information about FOGs waste legislation, contact our team today.
Dry wipe and clean excess food off cookware and plates before washing them, and dispose of food waste with other solid waste. This will greatly reduce the amount of material going into your grease processing unit, and ensure it functions more effectively, and requires less regular and expensive maintenance.
Make sure that your grease management equipment is regularly checked and maintained according to the operating instructions. Certain separators and dosing units require daily or weekly action to be carried out by staff in addition to routine servicing by our grease management specialists.
It is important to keep a log of all grease management maintenance and routine actions by staff, problems encountered, and work carried out by professionals as this will help you fine tune your grease management processes and optimise your service intervals.
