Frontline was nominated for its full complement of Smart Oil Management systems, including its signature EZ Oil system for dispensing packaged oil, completely automated Direct-Plumbed waste oil system, and web-based M3 data management software.

“This is the largest restaurant innovation show in Europe, so making it to the finals is truly an honor,” says Giovanni Brienza, vice president of Frontline. “We won in 2015 and appreciate being recognized again on such a prestigious international stage.”
