Our recipe for a healthy commercial kitchen

Healthy Commercial Kitchen

Food quality, food safety, the quality of staff and cooking equipment are key priorities for any foodservice business.  In contrast, the impact of a kitchen’s infrastructure can often be overlooked, misunderstood and under-estimated.  As waste water champions, ACO understands that a healthy commercial kitchen starts with healthy waste water management.

1. Grease Management

All kitchens produce wastewater which contains fats, oils and greases (FOG) and food debris and the effectiveness of your grease management system impacts upon the successful, profitable and safe operation of your kitchen.

Poor grease management leads to pipe blockages, unpleasant odours, wet floors which create a slip hazard and excessive cleaning costs.

At ACO, we provide a market-leading range of grease management solutions designed specifically for use in commercial kitchens. We also offer systems that are fully automated, making them easy to operate – saving you time, money and resources.

2. Hygienic Drainage & Cleanability

If you’re spending a significant amount of time and money on cleaning and you’re still not sure how clean your drainage system is, switching to a hygienically designed drainage system will have a sizeable impact on your business.

Hygienically designed drainage makes cleaning easier and enables drainage channels to be fully cleaned in as little as ten minutes.  In contrast, standard drainage channels cannot be fully cleaned even after two hours of cleaning. So if you’re not using a hygienically designed drainage system, you could be spending unnecessary time and money on cleaning and your drainage system still may not be as hygienic as you think.

ACO is a world leader in the development and manufacture of hygienically designed drainage products and offers the complete range of drainage products including channels, gullies and grates.
