Franchise company Filta has won the competition for the Green Franchise Award 2022. Filta provides mobile fryer management and oil services as well as other supplementary services that increase sustainability in the food service, hotel and food trade industries. The prize was presented yesterday by the German Franchise Association during the festive closing event of the annual Franchise Forum in Berlin.
An eight-member jury comprised of franchise and sustainability specialists evaluated all participants thoroughly. “The reason Filta won the Green Franchise Award was on the one hand, thanks to its unique service portfolio, allowing Filta customers, such as food service professionals, to substantially increase their level of sustainability”, said Kai Enders, President of the German Franchise Association. “On the other hand, as an international company, Filta has set itself very ambitious goals in terms of CO2 emissions and climate neutrality.”
Fryer service more relevant today than ever before
Saving on oil, reducing energy consumption, ensuring clean wastewater. That’s what Filta is about. The main business remains the mobile fryer management service, which has become more relevant than ever due to price increases in frying oil over the past few months as well as general oil scarcity. Mobile fryer cleaning and oil filtration on a micro basis enables restaurants, canteens, dining halls and even stadiums to reduce their amount of frying oil by up to 50%. This cuts costs and makes a valuable contribution to protecting the environment and resources. As for the staff in the kitchen, Filta relieves them of a huge burden and creates more safety in the workplace.
Other services such as the immediate on-site manufacture of refrigeration seals, regular, chemical-free drain cleaning as well as cutting-edge solutions in the field of grease separation and continuous cleaning of extraction ducts, complement the services on offer.
“We are delighted that through our commitment and our services, we are the number one ‘green’ franchise company in the German-speaking region”, said Jos van Aalst, Managing Director of Filta Deutschland. “Above all, this is a special recognition of our franchise partners’ daily commitment to stopping resource waste and to environmental protection.”
