Congratulations to each of the fish and chip shops announced in the National Fish and Chip Awards Top 60.
The 60 shops will now compete across 10 regions; Scotland, Wales, Northern Ireland, North East England, North West England, Midlands, Eastern England, London and South East England, Central & southern England and South West England.
The National Fish and Chip awards ceremony will take place at The Lancaster London Hotel in January 2016 and are recognised as one of the most prominent seafood industry events in the UK.
Paul Williams, Chief Executive of Seafish, said: “The aim of the awards has always been to showcase the very best fish and chip businesses in the UK while setting incredibly high standards for the industry to aspire to.
“The Independent Takeaway Fish and Chip Shop of the Year Award is one of the highest honours to receive as a fish and chip business. Many of our past winners and finalists have gone on to reap substantial benefits, including international fame through industry trips overseas, increased shop footfall and turnover and even launching their own products.
“It’s great to see so many excellent shops through to this stage of the competition. I’d like to offer up my congratulations and wish them the best as they prepare to continue their quest towards winning a regional title, but also thank them for consistently helping us to reinforce the UK’s reputation as the home of the world’s best fish and chips.”
