Five Lincolnshire fish and chip shops are in the running to become the Fish & Chip Takeaway of the Year 2024. They are among 40 other finalists and it is run by the National Fish and Chip Awards, in its 36th year.
The judging panel is made up of the industry’s ‘a-fish-onados’ and has put entrants through an extensive judging process, including testing them against industry best practices on environmental issues, product knowledge, and their responsibilities as an employer.
The five Lincolnshire fish and chip shops will go through further judges rounds to see if they progress to the next stages. Andrew Crook, President at the National Federation of Fish Friers, organiser of the awards, said: “The calibre of entries for the National Fish and Chip Awards 2024 have been nothing short of fantastic and we are proud of all the eateries that clearly put in huge amounts of effort to be considered for the accolade.
“Fish and Chip Takeaway of the Year is a notoriously difficult category to stand out in, but the panel of experts had many tough decisions to make. However, we’ve selected an exceptional shortlist that showcases the unwavering passion, dedication and excitement that the fish and chip industry brings to British culture.”
