Olleco raise over £74,000 for industry charity, Hospitality Action

Olleco, the UK’s leading supplier of premium cooking oils and fats, and collector of used cooking oil and waste food has donated a staggering £74,673.09 to industry charity Hospitality Action over the past five years.

Olleco, supply the hospitality sector with premium frying oils, collect their organic waste and convert it into renewable energy. Long standing supporters of the charity, the company has now raised an incredible £74,673.09 in donations. The funds have been used by the charity to transform the lives of many of its beneficiaries who have experienced challenges in their lives and find themselves in need.

Not only have Olleco donated via their cooking oils, but staff have got involved with the charity’s regional Golden Friends Scheme Lunches. These get-togethers provide an ideal opportunity for retirees from the industry to meet up with old friends or make new ones and means Olleco staff can volunteer their time to help support on the day.

Robert Behan, CEO of Olleco says: “Our ongoing partnership with Hospitality Action means a huge amount to us and our customers. Every time our customers buy our cooking oils and ask us to collect their organic waste, they are not only helping the environment but they are helping to provide vital assistance to their peers. The charity does invaluable work to help support those in a sector that is core to our business and we look forward to many more years of partnership.”
