Paul Williams, managing director at KFE, comments: “We fully support NEODA’s decision to move National Fish & Chip Day next year to fall in line with the 80th anniversary of D-Day. We can’t think of a more fitting tribute to the brave soldiers who gave their lives for our freedoms.
“We too will be showing our support – plans for which will be unveiled in the new year – and we hope chip shops across the UK will join us.”
National Fish and Chip Day is championed and run by trade organisation The National Edible Oil Distributors’ Association, who founded the day in 2015. Since its inception, more than half the population have seen, heard or read about National Fish & Chip Day.
Gary Lewis, President of NEODA, comments: “National Fish and Chip Day has always brought the nation together to celebrate this iconic dish, and because of the intrinsic links it has always had with the world wars and D-Day we knew we wanted to be as involved as possible so have moved the date to show our support.”
