Why enter the awards?
Entering the awards is easy and the accolade of being judged one of the best fish and chip businesses in the UK can have an enormous impact on business. Previous award winners have seen their sales increase by up to 100% within weeks of winning.
Media activity undertaken by Seafish in relation to the awards generates fantastic publicity for the fish and chip sector.
Various judging rounds eventually culminate at a prestigious awards ceremony in London in January where all the award winners are announced.
Boost to business
The accolade of being shortlisted in the awards can have an enormous impact on business – previous Regional winners’ of the flagship Independent Takeaway Fish and Chip Shop of the Year Award category have seen their turnover increase by up to 50% and some past National winners have seen their turnover increase by as much as 100%!
However, at every stage of the awards there are fantastic local PR and marketing opportunities for businesses just by being part of the awards.
Travel and learn
In a number of award categories, shortlisted businesses also have the opportunity to join various all-expense-paid industry study trip visits, providing the opportunity to learn more about where our seafood comes from. Previous visits have included trips to destinations including Norway and northeast Scotland.
