The surprising ingredient of a healthy kitchen

The wastewater generated by commercial kitchens is rich in fats, oils and grease (FOG) and if discharged down the drain can solidify in pipework and cause pipe blockages. This creates undesirable odours and can compromise cleanliness and hygiene in your kitchen. his can create an unpleasant working environment and result in high staff turnover and disappointed customers.

As a successful and responsible chef, manager or contractor that works regularly with foodservice establishments, you should understand the impact that drainage and grease management systems can have on the creation of a healthy commercial kitchen.

Current trends confirm that there is growing demand for fresh healthy food and corresponding catering concepts. Food must be prepared efficiently and safely in healthy kitchens. Cleaning and employee safety also make a significant contribution to the creation of a healthy kitchen environment.


Two phase grease separation

In restaurants, it is preferrable to install grease separators at the source of FOG pollution. This approach allows kitchen staff to focus primarily on cooking and food preparation. ACO provides a complete grease management solution from sink to sewer. The industry standard is to protect the sewer network but ACO goes further and also protects the building itself with its two phase approach to grease management.
