About Filta: Kitchen Cleaning & Used Cooking Oil Recycling Company

Reduce your commercial kitchen’s impact on the environment with Filta’s sustainable solutions.

Our History and Mission

Since 1996, the Filta Group has been providing unparalleled service around the world to restaurants and other food establishments beyond that of a conventional used cooking oil recycling company. Our company was first established in the United Kingdom, where we opened our first franchise in 1997. From there we began to spread across the globe, obtaining our master license in Australia in 1998, then coming to the U.S. in 2002.

We obtained our Benelux master license in 2013, expanding the next year into markets in Ireland, Poland, Portugal, and Costa Rica. In 2015, we hit two recruitment milestones, with 30 franchises in the UK and 120 franchises in the U.S. 2017 proved a big year for our company, as we were listed on the London stock exchange, entered the Canadian market, and reached a financial milestone in the U.S. with $40 million in network annualized revenue. In 2018, we acquired FiltaFry Deutschland, and in 2022 we merged with Franchise Brands.

Service and Sustainability

For over 25 years, Filta has specialized in cleaning deep fryers and recycling cooking oil. Our used cooking oil recycling franchise provides an on-site fryer management service that includes temperature calibration, oil micro-filtration, and a thorough vacuum-based detail cleaning of each fryer during every visit. The cleaning and maintenance of commercial fryers can be a dangerous task for employees, often resulting in serious burns, falls, and other injuries. FiltaFry eliminates these risks by providing a quick, safe, clean, and cost-effective service to maintain fryers without interrupting day-to-day operations. 

“Going Green” was never a commercial or trendy consideration for us. Filta’s services naturally preserve the environment, by extending the life of cooking oil with the FiltaFry service, recycling waste oil into biodiesel with FiltaBio, and reducing energy consumption and food waste with the FiltaCool product. In an age of climate change and economic stresses, Filta’s services are being recognized at the forefront by the food and hospitality industry. More than ever before, customers are realizing the many benefits to be gained from our services.
