The 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.
Visits so far have included:-
There have also been some purely fun trips; sea fishing at Whitby and paintballing in Warwickshire.
You can see a Gallery of past events on the Young Friers website!
The Young Friers Group also hold best practice workshops at the NFFF Training School in Leeds to try and pass on their skills and knowledge to those wishing to learn more about how best to operate a fish and chip shop. We are hoping to develop this further with workshops on sustainable sourcing and Industry specific qualifications, administered by the NFFF.
See the picture gallery of a previous workshop.
The Young Friers Group is committed to developing the future of the fish and chips through sharing ideas and skills while learning more about the industry. If you are a Young Frier or you employ a Young Frier and are wanting to get ahead in this fantastic trade then why not get involved?
The group is open to anyone working in the industry aged between 16-25 years old and to get involved simply send us your details via this form and you will be added to the mailing list for future events.
