We know you want first-class cooking oils at the best possible price, so we only work with Olleco-approved suppliers who source the seeds and fruits, from which our oils are made, directly from the producers.

The oils they supply are taken directly to a British Retail Consortium (BRC) – approved packing facility where the oil is packed into Olleco packaging. All of our packaging is recyclable and, if you opt to reuse the oil containers to return used cooking oil, we’ll take them away and recycle them for you.

We offer the UK food manufacturing industry a fully compliant and comprehensive collection service for used cooking oils and fats, as well as fats from meat preparation and processing. However, our service goes much further than that.
