Willenhall-based Middleton Foods – the UK’s leading manufacturer of food pre-mixes – embraced this year’s National Fish and Chip Day celebrations by once again feeding its local community. Employees from the family-owned and operated food manufacturer proudly served freshly cooked fish and chips to over 100 attendees of the Willenhall CHART Community Hub, on Tuesday 4th June.

Speaking about supporting the local community, Ryan Baker, Sales Manager, Middleton Foods comments:

“Middleton Foods has long been a supporter of National Fish and Chip Day, and as a headline sponsor once again, we’re especially proud to be involved in this year’s event when it’s the 80th Anniversary of D-Day. We always love to get involved and support our community, and we’ve long been associated with the Willenhall CHART Community Hub. With fish and chips being such an well-loved and staple British meal, celebrating National Fish and Chip Day – which celebrates all that is great about our incredible fish and chip trade; from the fishermen and farmers; to the owners and operators who work hard to make fish and chips such an integral and enjoyable part of communities up and down the UK – by providing lunch to those at the Willenhall CHART Community Hub is a real pleasure.”

Referred to as ‘Good Companions’ by Winston Churchill – who ensured fish and chips weren’t rationed because he thought it would be detrimental to the morale of the nation – during the D-Day landings, soldiers who found themselves behind enemy lines and needed a way of telling whether someone was a friend or foe, devised a two-word code… one called ‘fish’, the other replied ‘chips’!

As the biggest day in the fish and chip calendar, National Fish and Chip Day has gone from strength to strength since its inception in 2015 – returning in 2024 for its ninth year! The day is organised by trade organisation NEODA (the National Edible Oil Distributors Association). Find out more by visiting their website, www.nationalfishandchipday.org.uk!
