National Fish & Chip Day is one of the most popular awareness days of the year for our industry and this year there was a real chance of it not being able to take place. Following the Government’s recent announcements, we are absolutely delighted to say that it will happen, just a little later than usual on Friday 4th September!

This year’s celebration will be even more special as we celebrate not only the Nations favourite dish but the fantastic people that keep this industry and their communities alive even through the countries toughest times.

This event is championed by trade organisation, The National Edible Oil Distributors Association (NEODA). NEODA represents all the major refiners, key packers and distributors of edible oils as well as suppliers of non-oil products (such as batter mix, sausages, packaging, range manufacturers and potato preservatives) in the UK. NEODA President, Gary Lewis, comments, “National Fish and Chip Day has become more successful each year and in 2020 it will be a wonderful way to thank our amazing fish and chip industry.  It’s a celebration of the stars who work hard to bring Brits their favourite traditional takeaway. We want to bring the whole industry together to celebrate and showcase the great British institution that is Fish and Chips.”

Neoda are planning to make National Fish and Chip Day 2020 the best yet as they bring together everyone involved in creating this iconic British dish; from Fish & Chip shops, pub chains, restaurants, retailers, to the fishermen and farmers who provide the sustainable and natural ingredients needed to create this family favourite. 

Friday 4th September 2020 looks set to be a fantastic celebration and we want as many people to get involved as possible!

The Fishermen’s Mission charity is a beneficiary of many fundraising events run on National Fish and Chip Day, receiving £1000 from the sale of merchandise alone.  They say, “National Fish and Chip day is a fantastic event which brings together the very best of the industry.  Fishing continues to be the most dangerous peacetime occupation with a one in fourteen chance of being killed at work, the funds generated through National Fish & Chip day allow the Fishermen’s Mission to continue to provide Welfare and Emergency services to our Fishermen and their families, so on behalf of the Fishermen’s Mission team, and on behalf of all our beneficiaries, thank you from the bottom of our hearts for all your incredible support during this event.”
