Young Fish Friers Group

The Young Friers GroupThe Young Friers Group is a social network created in conjunction with the NFFF to help young people in the fish and chip trade get together, share ideas and raise standards across the country.

The group came about through the friendships formed between entrants of the Drywite/NFFF Young Fish Frier of the Year competition and has continued to grow from there.

The group is led by a committee made up of the founder members, many of whom are now Seafish Accredited Trainers at the NFFF Training School and are all brilliant examples of young people who are enjoying a succesful and rewarding career owning, managing and working in the fish frying trade.

Industry Visits

The group has grown to over sixty members in its first year, with visits to some of the industry's leading One of the Young Fish Friers Group Visits!shops and factories.

Visits so far have included:-

There have also been some purely fun trips; sea fishing at Whitby and paintballing in Warwickshire.
