About The Awards

Recognised as one of the most prominent and respected seafood industry events in the UK and widely considered as the ‘Oscars’ of the fish frying industry, the National Fish & Chip Awards celebrate the great British tradition of fish and chips by rewarding the best talent, quality and choice offered by fish and chip businesses.

Now in their 32nd year, the awards seek to:

  • Reward individual excellence in a range of different award categories.
  • Raise quality standards and provide a benchmark for businesses to aspire to (performance feedback is provided to all entrants).
  • Provide a robust platform for a wide variety of media activity.
  • Promote the sector and its many diverse facets and encourage the continued consumption of fish and chips amongst both the UK population and visitors to the UK.

There are a variety of award categories to enter and businesses are appraised on criteria ranging from sustainable sourcing practices, customer service, hygiene and staff training, and most importantly, the quality of fish and chips.

The 2019 National Fish & Chip Awards ceremony took place on Thursday 24 January at the Royal Lancaster Hotel in London.

Applications for the 2020 awards will open for entry on 1 May 2019.
