Established in 2006, we are the renewables arm of our parent – ABP Food Group. We were originally created to address changes in legislation banning the traditional use of used cooking oil as an ingredient in animal feed.
To reduce the carbon footprint of our used cooking oil collections, we combine our collection journeys with the delivery of fresh cooking oils and fats. We source a range of premium cooking oils and fats from sustainable sources to meet the demands of our customers and deploy a fleet of bespoke vehicles designed to minimise the carbon impact of our logistics.
We provide the food and hospitality sectors with a range of services designed to help them to tackle the climate emergency by converting their waste resources into renewable energy. Olleco is the renewables arm of ABP Food Group and has grown to become the UK’s leading supplier of premium cooking oils and fats as well as its largest collector of used cooking oil and food waste.
Employing over 700 people, at 19 sites strategically located throughout the UK and Ireland, we service over 50,000 catering establishments. We convert the used oil we collect into renewable fuels while the food waste is transformed into biomethane, electricity, heat, and organic fertiliser.
In addition to a comprehensive network of local depots, we operate three used cooking oil bio-refineries, a biodiesel plant, a bulk liquid storage facility and three anaerobic digestion (AD) plants with support from a wider network of licensed AD facilities.
