SUSTAINABILITY

Today, all businesses are beholden to more than customers and shareholders.

There is an expectation of environmental and social responsibility that comes with operating in the wider world. Often, these are boxes that need to be checked to continue with business. Frontline International makes it easier for foodservice businesses to introduce and maintain principles of environmental and social responsibility with equipment and services that make sustainability and safety part of operating culture. Frontline’s ongoing purpose is to be a conduit by which its customers can achieve their own environmental, social, and governance success.

A History of Sustainability

Environmental sustainability is the foundation upon which Frontline was built. The company’s very first products related to filtration, collection, and storage of used cooking oil to prepare it for recycling by oil renderers as feedstock for biofuel. But Frontline took it a step further.

  • Frontline used oil collection systems result in a product that is 95% pure for use by renderers. That means it is more in-demand by renderers AND takes less energy to convert into biofuel, adding an extra layer of positive environmental impact.
  • Not only that, Frontline has helped grow the oil recycling industry. Used oil was once an afterthought. It has now become so valuable that contracting for its collection by renderers has become a new revenue stream for foodservice operators. Frontline’s has raised awareness of this, helping to push the value of used oil to $7.50 per gallon. There is now financial incentive to do the right thing
  • Frontline used oil collection systems keep fats, oils, and greases (FOG) out of drains, sewers, and groundwater. This equipment makes it easy to demonstrate your ongoing commitment to safe, sustainable water.

Total Oil Lifestyle Sustainability

The company’s commitment to sustainability has only grown from there. Frontline’s fresh oil management systems added value and sustainability to cooking oil at the beginning of its lifecycle.

  • Frontline’s EZ Oil system uses boxed bulk oil and generates up to 10% greater yields. All plastic and cardboard packaging is 100% recyclable. Plus, the quality and selection of bulk boxed oil is preferred by discerning operators and their customers, creating an ongoing market for this sustainable commodity.
  • Frontline’s Kitchen Controller system maximizes the use of this vital ingredient. It’s an end-to-end automated oil management system that monitors oil quality, communicating condition and recommended actions to help extend oil life, such as skimming, topping off or changing out. Change-outs are push-button automated and touchless. Managers can remotely monitor functions and verify recommendations are being performed.
  • Frontline’s auto top-off feature dispenses a small amount of oil after each order, further extending the life of cooking oil.
  • Delivery of boxed bulk oils comes on the same truck as other kitchen supplies, minimizing use of fossil fuels and their related emissions. Tank oil requires a separate truck, often traveling much farther distances.

Safety IS Social Responsibility

Safety is another core tenet of Frontline. Its fresh oil and used oil solutions create closed system, in which employees never have to come in direct contact with oil.

  • Fresh oil is plumbed from the EZ Oil rack directly to fryer vats. Filtration is enclosed.
  • Used oil is plumbed to the holding tank then pumped out by the renderer.
  • The risk of burns and slips and falls is virtually eliminated. By taking cooking oil out of the hands of workers, Frontline products have prevented an untold number of burns and slip and fall accidents.
  • Kitchens stay cleaner, too, creating a much more pleasant environment for employees.
  • Tank oil requires a separate truck, often traveling much farther distances.

57% of all food service general liability insurance claims are slip-and-fall accidents.

50% of all injuries among restaurant workers are caused by hot grease.

The foodservice industry experiences about 12,000 burns each year, the highest number of any employment sector.

The foodservice industry spends more than $2 billion each year for slip-and-fall injuries.



Frontline oil care solutions is helping lower these statistics.
