Whether it’s professional cleaning of fryers, oil filtration or environmentally-friendly disposal of used oil, for renowned catering company Marché Mövenpick, sustainable frying has been in operation in some restaurants for quite some time.
Not without its hazards, in order to ‘not get burnt’ in this sensitive area of fryer- and oil-related tasks, Marché Mövenpick has long relied on mobile fryer, oil and grease specialists: Filta, whose franchise partners take care of the fryers in Magdeburg Zoo and zoos in Berlin and Munich, among others.
A one-stop shop for fryer services
To ensure that uniform guidelines are applied nationally from now on for Marché Mövenpick’s use of Filta services, both companies have entered into a framework contract. “Under the same conditions, all our locations now benefit to the same extent from these services, which along with fryer cleaning and oil filtration, also include the collection of used oil and delivery of new oil”, says Maximilian Übelhör (Head of Quality & Purchasing) at Marché Mövenpick.
Quality oil instead of palm oil
“Thanks to Filta, we not only relieve our staff of often unpopular fryer-related tasks, but we also save a huge amount of oil and thus protect resources, which perfectly matches our sustainability strategy,” adds Maximilian Übelhör. “We also have Filta deliver high-quality frying oil to us and deliberately avoid using palm oil to take a stand against the deforestation of the rain forest. Furthermore, quality, sunflower-based oil is usable for far longer and ensures healthier fried products.”
Filta also cleans drains – entirely without chemicals
In addition to fryer services, mobile services that Filta offers its customers include other services and products such as automatic cleaning of extraction systems, the high-performance grease separator FiltaFOG Cyclone, direct replacement of refrigeration seals and chemical-free drain cleaning.
Under the new agreement, Filta partners will take responsibility for regular cleaning of drains which is completely chemical-free and sustainably prevents odour build-up and guarantees free drains.
“We are very happy about this new phase of cooperation, which not only makes new customer acquisition easier for our franchisees, but also ensures even better sustainability results in other Marché locations”, says Filta Managing Director Jos van Aalst.
