Andrew Crook, President at the NFFF, said “This Field to Frier category is a really important part of the National Fish and Chip Awards, and a good opportunity to celebrate businesses going above and beyond. There’s so much more to good fish and chips than the end-product on the plate (or paper!) and it’s great to see so many fish and chip shop owners recognising and implementing this. Well done to everyone who has been shortlisted!”
