From a host of UK-wide applications, the National Fish and Chip Awards has identified three fish and chip shops as top-class finalists for its Staff and Training Development trophy.

The successful chippy finalists have shown industry insiders their commitment to providing opportunities for team members to access additional training to enhance their skills, gain new qualifications and scale up the professional ladder.

Last Year’s winner – The Chesterford Group

The nature of the awards’ judging process is notoriously intense as a way of steering businesses to further raise their standards and to set a motivating precedence for employees and peers alike.

The fish and chip shops that excelled in the grilling and will be heading to the London awards ceremony on 28 February at the Park Plaza Westminster to find out who has schooled the other contenders, are:


Eric’s Fish and Chips, Hunstanton


Haven,Cook’s Fish and Chips


The Real Food Café, Tyndrum

Organiser of the awards and National Federation of Fish Friers President Andrew Crook, says: “For many of us, being in the fish and chip industry is a lifestyle and not just something we enjoy doing for work. The Staff and Training Development award is really special as it’s a salute to those embodying this mindset and showing their teams the many avenues available that can lead to long-lasting, fulfilling careers and experiences.

“The chippies are already doing an amazing job in their communities and this recognition will hopefully help attract more new starters who are also enthused by the nation’s much-loved dish.”
