Over de werkgever
Our client is established in 2006 in England. They were originally created to address changes in legislation banning the traditional use of used cooking oil as an ingredient in animal feed.
Used cooking oil is a precious, energy-rich material however, in landfill, it contributes to global warming. When it is disposed of in sewers, it causes blockages and can lead to the formation of fatbergs. To ensure that it is not wasted in either of these damaging ways, our client set out to collect as much used cooking oil as possible and convert it into high value, renewable fuels such as biodiesel.
To reduce the carbon footprint of used cooking oil collections, our client combine their collection journeys with the delivery of fresh cooking oils and fats. They source a range of premium cooking oils and fats from sustainable sources to meet the demands of their customers and deploy a fleet of bespoke vehicles designed to minimise the carbon impact of their logistics.
