Responsibly disposing of Fats, Oils and Grease (FOGs) in commercial kitchens is an important part of running any restaurant and one that should not be ignored. The consequences of doing so can be severe, from blocked and smelly drains to potential prosecution. Filta are established grease management experts and to help ensure your commercial kitchen continues to run efficiently and without disruption, all our grease management products and services are tailored to the specific needs of your business. 

The importance of grease management for restaurants 

Without proper waste management solutions in place, when washing dirty utensils, crockery and cooking equipment, residual fats, oils and grease (FOGs) are free to run down into the drain and pipes of your establishment. Over time, the substances stick to the sides of the pipes which can build up and cause problematic blockages. Not only do obstructions in the drains cause unpleasant smells, hardly ideal for a commercial kitchen with lots of staff and customers, but can lead to serious health risks, the pollution of the environment and severe legal ramifications. When you run a commercial kitchen, you must abide by 6 laws and regulations that govern the disposal of food waste, fat, oil and grease to prevent it from entering the drains and sewers and causing costly problems on a much wider scale.
