NFFF Fish & Chip Quality Award
It's a fact that today, fish and chips are still Britain's number one takeaway. The NFFF Fish & Chip Quality Award Scheme is all about finding those shops throughout the UK that give their customers the BEST QUALITY fish and chips, assessing them against our quality benchmark and rewarding successful applicants who pass the inspection and the taste test, with the 'BIG Q' Quality Award sign. This is so you can be assured of eating top quality fish and chips from a top quality fish and chip shop!
Fish and chips have been the nation’s favourite for over 150 years and for over 100 of those years (since 1913), the National Federation of Fish Friers has been the voice of the UK’s 10,500 or so fish and chip shops. We teach new entrants to the market how to cook tasty, good quality fish and chips. We promote best practices, staff training and qualifications, food hygiene, nutrition awareness, responsible sourcing from sustainable supplies and we fully support fish and chip shops that offer their customers high quality fish and chips.

Launched in January 2011, replacing the previous Seafish Friers Quality Award, The NFFF Fish & Chip Quality Award is a scheme aimed at improving standards and rewarding shops that provide top quality fish and chips in a clean, hygienic and safe environment.
The Quality Award is all about finding those shops throughout the UK that give their customers the best quality fish and chips, assessing them against our quality benchmark and rewarding successful applicants who pass the inspection and the taste test, with Quality Award certification.
