We have had close contact with the organization through many years and enjoy many good relationships with members of the NFFF. We have decided it´s time that we now take a more active role in partnership with the NFFF to support the members in the best way we can do.

The British Fish & Chip industry is very important for our Norwegian fishing industry and Brits has enjoyed the sustainable and high-quality Norwegian cod and haddock for many years. Many generations of Norwegian fishermen and British Fish & Chip shop owners has been partners and many still buy fish from the same vessels as their predecessor did. We see that the UK Fish & Chip industry is challenged by many competitors and we want to contribute to all the good work that will be done to secure Fish & Chips as the No. 1 British national dish. The NFFF is the natural place to support this.”
