Fat,Oil and Grease Programme

What are Fats, Oils and Grease (FOG)?

FOG stands for ‘fats, oils and grease’ and originate from food products such as butter, lard, vegetable oils, animal fats, meats, sauces and dairy products. They are generated during the preparation of food and from any cleaning/washing up processes. 

FOG causes a problem when it is washed down the drains, either during food preparation or in the washing up operation. When it cools it will congeal and accumulate in pipelines, thus eventually blocking the pipe.
