“We believe that proving regulatory compliance should be easy and free for responsible businesses and we’re committed to going above and beyond to make it that way”
Michael Vs the Fatbergs
There’s something sinister lurking underground. They’re big, bold and they cost cities and businesses millions of dollars a year to remove. Meet the fatbergs, congealed masses of fat, oil and grease. They are the cholesterol that blocks our sewer systems and silently constrict wastewater flow.
A bright idea from the depths of the sewer
Michael O’Dwyer, our CEO, started his working life as an engineer setting up a fat, oil and grease regulatory program for food businesses in Dublin. It was then that he saw how overly-paper based, time consuming and inefficient this process was. Witnessing first-hand how the regulatory system frustrated both restaurant owners and the enforcing city officials, he looked for a technology that could digitize the process and improve fractious relationships. There was none, so he set about building it himself. The result was SwiftComply, the world’s first real-time business-friendly restaurant compliance platform.
From fighting Fatbergs to fighting the cost of compliance
Michael needed a team. He picked technologists, environmentalists and business specialists who also happen to love food (yes, we do exist)!
Together, we’re dedicated to reducing the cost of kitchen compliance. We do this improving relations between cities and businesses encouraging trust, transparency and a more efficient system.
And when we’re not eliminating the costs of compliance, we’re eating out and enjoying the restaurants we’re trying to help comply.
