Kitchen fats, oil and grease (FOG) is a byproduct of food production. If there is any food prep, cooking or cleaning carried out in any kitchen, then chances are you're leaving FOG behind. And when this is washed into a sink, it then creates a problem – a blockage. 


It’s important that everyone working in your kitchen knows the best way to get rid of this type of waste. You can help them understand why it’s important to keep the sewers clear from FOG, and how they can help prevent your business causing blockages and problems further downstream in the environment.

Tips and advice​
