The NFFF’s president Andrew Crook told The Mirror: “We are really excited for the return of the National Fish and Chip Awards after we became the custodians of this prestigious event.

“With so many challenges currently for these small independent businesses it is fantastic to be able to highlight the great work the industry does, serving great value meals, providing quality employment and minimising the impact on the environment.”

He added: “Running a small business can feel that you are alone and often it feels that we don’t feature in Government’s plans for economic recovery but the calibre of these finalists show that we have a professional sector that is ready to play its part and with the right support to enable growth we can continue to play our vital role working within out local communities.”
