National Fish & Chip Awards 2024

The best fish and chip shops have been honoured at the National Fish and Chip Awards 2024 hosted by comedian Rob Beckett.

The awards, which took place on Wednesday 28th February in London, celebrate excellence throughout the fish and chip industry both on home shores and for the first time this year, international ones too. The heavily anticipated event was attended by guests which included fish and chip business owners, industry partners and sponsors including its headliner, Norwegian Seafood Council representative, Seafood from Norway.

Over the last few months, businesses have been ‘plaice-d’ under a microscope, applicants have been grilled with interviews and skills tests by sector specialists. Industry knowledge and sustainable practices have been pored over and unannounced mystery visits were made but the hard work has paid off and the winners are reeling in the rewards.

Speaking about the event, awards organiser and President of the National Federation of Fish Friers Andrew Crook says: “The National Fish and Chip Awards 2024 has been a remarkable experience to be part of. Our winners and finalists have put their all into making their fish and chip businesses stand-out for all the right reasons.

“It’s no secret that the sector has been hit hard by economic hardship, yet we have seen firsthand how chippies up and down the country, and overseas, are thinking fast on their feet to defy the odds without compromising on ethical standpoints, quality and, most importantly, great tasting fish and chips.

“We are bursting with pride for our winners and other contenders. It’s a privilege to be able to support and encourage them further and they should all be proud of what they’ve achieved.”
