The award recognises suppliers that go the extra mile to provide quality produce and
stand-out service to the fish and chip industry or organise events to help bring the
industry closer together and was last year won by Henry Colbeck. These companies have helped make the fish and chip industry and its network what it is today.
The Supplier of the Year finalists are:
Dennis Crooks – Fish Merchants
Organiser of the National Fish and Chip Awards Andrew Crook and president of the
National Federation of Fish Friers which is sponsoring the category says: “The fish
and chip industry has a supply chain like no other, many of our suppliers are family
businesses themselves that have grown as the industry has grown. These suppliers
understand that by supporting fish and chip shops the whole industry benefits and
often go above and beyond what is required to help our industry.
“Over the last few years, there have been times when the chips have literally been
down, as well as fish stock, with many businesses facing challenges and setbacks
but having great suppliers like our finalists to lean on is what makes the industry
resilient and a privilege to be part of. Best of luck to Ceres, KFE and Dennis Crooks
The winner of the Supplier of the Year category will be announced at the awards
ceremony hosted by comedian Rob Beckett on 28 February at the Park Plaza
Westminster Bridge, London. Few tickets remain, so get yours today to avoid
