FREE Industry Open Day - Come and join us! Isle of Ely Produce and Chippy Chat are once again opening their doors to chip shop owners and managers on Sunday, September 10th 2023! It is one of the FREE industry events of the year!

LAST FEW FREE TICKETS HERE! The event starts at 9.30 am at our farm in Ely, Cambridgeshire with a coffee and a chance to talk to industry colleagues. It is invaluable, not only do chip shop owners and staff find out first-hand how the potato crop is faring for 2023/24, but they also get an idea about the predicted cost and quality of the crop for the year ahead. Add to that lots of key suppliers will be sponsoring the day. In 2022 they included Pukka Pies, Middleton Foods, Premier 1 Filtration, TQuality, Drywite, Friars Pride, Preoday (Qikserve), Agrico, McWhinney, Seafood from Norway, Standout Marketing, BD Signs, Meijer Potato UK, Panaepos, Smales, PJ Lee & Sons, HZPC, JFK, Farm Electronics, Blakemans, Frymax & more. You will watch presentations on our giant AV, with complete staging, from award-winning fish and chip shop owners, giving you valuable advice for your shop. Guest speakers for the 2023 event already include NFFF President Andrew Crook, NFFF National Fish & Chip Award winner Geoff Whitehead, Sarah Heward from the Real Food Café, Calum Richardson from The Bay, and Victoria Braathen from Seafood from Norway plus more to be announced. Please email if you would like to be a sponsor and/or exhibit on the day.

We will also have Oliver Boutwood back with his Q&A sessions, plus the chance for you to try Babylon, a new chipping variety from Agrico, and lots of samples and freebies too. It’s a FREE industry event not to miss! The event is suitable for all levels of management and also young friers too, with a maximum of 3 tickets per shop. FREE refreshments will also be served.

In 2022 over 50 people stayed in Ely too for an evening meal and drink, a chance for you all to sit and relax with industry peers. Please let us know if you intend to stay by emailing, and we will add you to the list for the restaurant and send you hotel choices (if staying). LAST FEW FREE TICKETS HERE!

Enjoy the Day
