As of 1 August, Maja Schneider, as a new Filta franchisee in Berlin, will ensure clean deep fryers and micro-filtering of the frying oil with our mobile deep fryer services in the kitchens of the capital, resulting in significant savings in oil consumption.

“Maja has been responsible for marketing and press relations since the German launch of our franchise in 2015 and will continue to look after both,” says Filta managing director Jos van Aalst. “We are all the more pleased that she, as the first woman on board our franchise family, is now also driving the expansion of Filta services as an independent entrepreneur with her Berlin team.”

“Living in Berlin, I have been able to closely observe and familiarise myself with the Filta business here for many years,” adds Maja. “Now is the right time for me to take this into my own hands. With the size and infrastructure of this city alone, I see the road to success as a big challenge that I’m really looking forward to.”

With Thomas Kokott and Sandi Huseinovic, Maja already has two long-standing and, above all, field-tested fryer specialists in the team. The youngest employee, Linus Sohr, has successfully completed his induction period and is already on tour independently.

Maja is also taking over an existing customer base, some of whom have already been using the Filta service for deep fryers and frying oil on a weekly basis for many years. These include Marché and BMB with their restaurants and snack bars in both Berlin zoos, the gastronomy in the Mömax furniture stores and several burger chains with their stores.
