Firstly, on behalf of everyone at Florigo we would like to congratulate all of the finalists and winners, you’ve all achieved a lot this year and it’s a credit to all your hard work. Events like the Fish and Chip Awards make us proud to be part of such a friendly and dedicated industry.
Congratulations to Tim and Kelly from Krispies for winning Best Fish and Chip Shop in the UK this year, truly worthy winners of this accolade and already great ambassadors for our industry.
We would like to give a special congratulations to the Florigo customers amongst the winners, firstly to Trenchers of Whitby for winning Best Restaurant, it was easy to see how much this meant to you all and we feel privileged to be working with you! Secondly, the amazing Lauren Kellaway from Kellaways Fish and Chips won Drywite’s Young Fish Frier of the year, we have every confidence that Lauren is a bright face for the future of fish frying and will make a great impact on the industry!
The Outstanding Achievement award went to Andrew Crook, owner of Skippers and NFFF President, Andrew goes above and beyond to improve our industry and keep us moving with the times. The standing ovation Andrew received speaks volumes of the work that he does.
A special mention for The Millers is 100% necessary! What incredible winners you’ve been the last year, you’ve accomplished so much and are the nicest people to get to know in the industry, you’ve inspired a lot of people and we’re excited to see what else the future holds for you.
We had a few new faces from Florigo to bring to the awards yesterday, it was great for the team to be able to put faces to names and meet everyone at such a positive and fun celebration. We also brought two lovely customers with us, David Nicolaou from Auckley Friery and Rebecca Brewer from Port & Starboard, thank you for joining us and being a great addition to the table.
Roll on next year!
