The Outstanding Achievement Award celebrates an individual who has made a significant contribution to the industry and has played an instrumental part in advancing innovation. This may not necessarily be through long service but more an individual who has made an important impact on fish and chips, either in the short or long term.
Andrew’s own fish and chip shop is called Skippers of Euxton, Chorley, Lancashire. He follows in the footsteps of his late father who was also a previous President of the NFFF and a winner of the Outstanding Achievement Award at The National Fish & Chip Awards in 2010.
Marcus Coleman, Chief Executive at Seafish, comments: “The aim of the National Fish & Chip Awards has always been to showcase the very best fish and chip businesses and individuals in the UK while setting incredibly high standards for the rest of the fish and chip industry to aspire to. When searching for our outstanding achiever, representatives from across all parts of the fish and chip industry are invited to nominate a person deserving of recognition, and Andrew’s nomination is one that the industry was wholeheartedly behind.
“Through his unstinting hard work and endeavour on behalf of the wider fish and chip industry, Andrew is an extremely worthy winner, and it’s a privilege being able to reward his life-long passion and commitment to the fish and chip trade. Warmest congratulations to Andrew on his outstanding achievement.”
