‘Field to Frier’ FREE Open Day – Sunday 11th September…

Field to Frier Open Day

Isle of Ely Produce and Chippy Chat are to once again open their doors to chip shop owners and managers so they can see first-hand the journey a potato makes (from seed through to field & farm) before it reaches their shops. This year the day is backed by the NFFF, and is changed to a Sunday to encourage even more visitors.

It is an important day for suppliers too, as much of the day will be spent exchanging ideas from across the industry, and attendees are given key time to talk to sponsors/exhibitors on the day.  Contact me if you would like to exhibit? There is great line up of speakers penciled in and once again a full  AV stage will be set up too.

Also included in the day will be a visit to one of the biggest potato farmers in Cambridgeshire.

It is thought over 100 friers will attend including many award winning shop owners.

The event will be held on Sunday 11th September (9.30 am start) in Ely, Cambridgeshire and will be available on a first come first served basis. It is FREE for all chip shop owners and managers.

Key speakers include Simpsons Cheltenham (National Fish and Chip Champions 2016), Mark Drummond, Towngate Fisheries (multiple award winner) Craig Buckley (Young Frier winner and Field to Frier Award Holder). We will also hear from The Norwegian Seafood Council about their latest campaigns. More surprises are planned on the day too.

It is hoped that after the open day many people will stay on in Ely and meet up later for a meal and a few drinks whilst discussing the latest trends in the industry and how everyone can get involved with promoting fish and chips!

If you would like to attend the event (as a supplier or chip shop) or exhibit/sponsor please call Austen Dack on 07863 123 929 or email him at  austen@chippychat.co.uk
