Isle of Ely Industry Open Day  2020


Isle of Ely Produce and Chippy Chat are to once again open their doors to chip shop owners and managers in 2020, to show you why you should be asking for Isle of Ely Produce marketed potatoes! 

Last year the day was invaluable not only did chip shop owners and staff see first-hand the journey a potato makes (from seed through to field & farm) before it reaches their shops, but they also found out first hand of what the 2019/20 potato crop was faring, giving them heads up on both expected cost and quality of the crop. 

This year we plan to let you know how the 2020 crop looks and also of how we are looking to new varieties which can grow in ever changing environments 

It was also a day for fryers to get together in an unique environment and exchange tips, try new products and also listen first hand to presentations across the day from industry experts. 

 In 2019 we had over 140 friers and suppliers join us for one of the best industry days out of the year and 2020 we already have lots of owners and friers registered to attend.   

The event will be held on Sunday 5th 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.  

The day is once again supported by the NFFF.  

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.   

In fact we are offering suppliers a great rate to attend on the day to come and show friers what they do. With prices from just £249, (to help us pay for the day) why not come and display your products. If you need a bigger space please call/email us and we will tailor the package to your needs.  

Already we have a great line up of speakers pencilled in (these will now carry over until 2021).

Sponsors and suppliers for the day in 2019 included Middleton Foods, Kerry Food Service, Drywite, Pukka Pies, Seafood from Norway, HOLL Oil, FrymaxFriars Pride, Wrapped Insurance, KFE, T Quality, VITO P J Lee & Sons, Sarsons, Seafish and more 

Please contact me if you would like to sponsor speak and/or exhibit?    

Also, included in the day will be an educational visit to potato farm in Cambridgeshire.  Isle of Ely Produce sell potatoes through merchants across the UK. Make sure you ask your supplier what potatoes he has that have come via Isle of Ely Produce.  

In the evening many people 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!
