Supporting chippies through increasing costs

Vito UK (leading Norfolk-based oil filter machine suppliers for restaurants and takeaways across the United Kingdom) have noticed businesses turning to more environmentally friendly options to try and make a dent in their business costs. Through turning to greener options, commercial kitchens have been able to reduce their oil consumption by up to half, in turn reducing their spend on standardised equipment.

It’s no shock that Norwich food establishments of all kinds are struggling with the rising energy costs, as well as issues with sourcing ingredients due to price increases as well as supply/demand problems.

Changing business processes or upgrading kitchen equipment can require large investments – not just money, but investing in the time it takes to train teams on the updated processes and new machinery.

Cooking oils are used as standard ingredients in every restaurant – you can’t avoid using them somewhere. However, the use of cooking oils can be wasteful and destructive if you consider just how much you use over an extended period.

However, Iain Addison of Vito UK has commented “Our clients quickly see a return on investment with their oil filters and testing equipment.

“An average customer can see a return between 8-12 months depending on how busy their shop is. There’s additionally the environmental impact on filtering your oil more regularly.”

Oil filter machinery – such as the VITO VL – cleans frying oil in an easy and hygienic way. Machines such as this can be portable, and suitable for heavy duty fryers and fish and chip shop ranges.

By extending the life of your oil, you can reduce consumption by up to 50% which has a knock-on effect on the amount you require in the long-term as well as a positive impact on your businesses environmental footprint.

“We believe that work to become a sustainable commercial food establishment doesn’t have to be complicated, and we have calculated you can save up to 2.5 tons of CO2 over 5 years with our oil filter systems – with the break-even point reached after only 5.5 weeks.”
