Restaurants operate on thin profit margins. But compromising on quality or taste is never an option. FRONTLINE INTERNATIONAL’s approach to Smart Oil Management™ includes custom oil filtration systems that allow owners and operators to get as much as 20 to 50 percent longer fry life than with unfiltered oil. The company’s Flexible Filter System is a standalone oil filtration system that allows users to easily change filter media according to needs and usage. If your fryer does not have built-in filtration, the Frontline International Caddy System with filtration option could be an ideal solution for you. It converts a simple oil transport caddy into a powerful filtration system.
Oil is directly tied to the condition and consistency of your fried foods, and the Flexible Filtration System can help regardless of the type or size of fryer you use. Contact Frontline International to find out how to acheve the cost-savings benefits of filtered oil. All of Frontline International’s systems include a one-year warranty on both parts and labor.

For chefs, turkey chorizo is a versatile product that is ideal for menu applications across every daypart. Foodservice operators cite the top 10 uses for ground turkey as chili, meatballs, meatloaf, tacos, lettuce wraps, shepherd’s pie, empanadas, nachos, Bolognese sauce and pizza—all of which can be easily spiced up with chorizo turkey.
