It all started in 1954

The history of cooking oil is long and varied, but over the past six decades we like to think we’ve made our mark on the industry.

As good as we’ve always been

More than 60 years ago, Frymax started out with the sole goal of delivering the highest quality frying oil to the nation’s best chip shops. A lot has changed since Frymax was established back in 1954, but we haven’t. The ingredients we used in that first batch of palm oil are the same ingredients we continue to use today.

It’s no coincidence that we have multiple customers who have been using Frymax for over 25, or even 50 years. Frymax is committed to preserving what has made us a brand leading oil for decades. We’re trusted across the UK as one of the very best cooking oil brands available.
