The biggest food awareness day of the year, National Fish and Chip Day, is back for its seventh year on Friday 27th May 2022 and everybody should be shouting about it!

Organiser NEODA believes it is really important this year with everyone needing a feel good day – and we couldn’t agree more.

The industry has been hit hard over the past couple of years but it has been resilient, adapted and has bounced back with a bang.  Following the humanitarian crisis in Ukraine, price increases are impacting everybody and we want to give the shops a well-deserved boost with this much loved day.

It’s good to have an awareness day to promote ‘Brand Fish & Chips’ – it has always been a day to celebrate the entire sector and the valued part they play in their communities and this year is no different.  It’s a day to generate goodwill amongst the local community and remind them why fish and chips is the nation’s favourite dish!
