President at the National Federation of Fish Friers and organiser of the awards, Andrew Cook said: “We can all relate to the joyous moment of taking that first bite of a chip fresh from the frier.

“The amount of skill it takes to get the perfect balance of textures, uniform colour and moreish flavour shouldn’t be underestimated. The Field to Frier award is a fantastic opportunity for us to congratulate businesses for being at the top of their game.”


He continued: “Many of the applications came in following the annual Isle of Ely Open Day where attendees learn so much about how to choose, store and fry potatoes so we’re thrilled to see so many shortlisted from across the country.”
