About the awards

Now in their 31st year, the National Fish & Chip Awards recognise and reward businesses producing the best fish and chips across the UK.

The awards aim to support the wider fish frying trade in their effort to maintain their share of the quick service/takeaway/fast food market – and seek to:

- reward individual excellence in a range of different award categories

- raise quality standards and provide a benchmark for businesses to aspire to (performance feedback is provided to all entrants)

- provide a robust platform from which to undertake a wide variety of media activity promoting the sector and its many diverse facets, and to encourage the continued consumption of fish and chips amongst both the UK population and visitors to the UK.

There are a variety of award categories to enter and businesses are appraised on criteria ranging from sustainable sourcing practices, customer service, hygiene and staff training, and most importantly, the quality of fish and chips.
