The National Federation of Fish Friers are pleased to announce that the Norwegian Seafood Council have agreed to be the Principal Sponsors of the National Fish and Chip Awards to help relaunch the event after a two year break.

NFFF President Andrew Crook said “We are delighted to be working with the Norwegian Seafood Council on the awards.  This is a huge project for the NFFF and we have a great working relationship with the NSC.  We look forward to taking the event forward in association with the Norwegian Seafood Council who have been great supporters of the event through the years.”

Hans Frode Kielland Asmyhr, UK Director of Norwegian Seafood Council, says: “The Norwegian Seafood Council is very happy to be the principal sponsor of the 2023 National Fish & Chip Awards, which are a cornerstone of the fish and chip industry. We have worked with the NFFF for some time now to secure the relaunch, where we will honour best practice in the iconic UK fish and chip industry within a multitude of categories that carry great weight across the sector and beyond.

We are also proud to sponsor the category award for recognising sustainability and good environmental practice within the industry. Food security and sustainability has come to the fore in recent years, and the take up of our Fish & Tips campaign in fish and chip businesses across the UK is demonstrative of just how important the issue is to the industry as a whole. It’s imperative we work together to offer sustainable options on menus and educate consumers on the importance provenance and choosing sustainable options.

The National Fish & Chip Awards have given endless energy to the nations fish and chip shops over the years, and to our exporters. We are honoured and excited to continue to be a part of this positivity for Great British fish and chips.”The National Fish and Chip Awards Launched on the 28th of June 2022 and entries are open until the end of August with the ceremony taking place at the Park Plaza Westminster Bridge in London on the 28th of February 2023.

Andrew Crook said “The NFFF took this event on as it is of great importance to the fish and chip industry, our board is donating a lot of their own time to get these awards moving again but the event is only possible with the support of our sponsors.  We are grateful for everyone who has pledged support and helping us to deliver what is the highlight of the fish and chip calendar.”
