Two chippies in the running for top sustainability award



Two fish and chip shops have been shortlisted for this year’s Food Made Good Awards organised by The Sustainable Restaurant Association.


Kingfisher Fish and Chips in Plymouth and The Bay Fish & Chips in Stonehaven are both finalists in the Source Fish Responsibly category alongside the London School of Economics. The award recognises outlets that are going above and beyond in ethical sourcing.

Sponsored by Direct Seafoods, the award is one of 17 that will be presented by SRA president Raymond Blanc and vice president Prue Leith at a ceremony in London on 5th October. The awards recognise restaurants and food service businesses whose accomplishments in the last year have driven progress in the industry with categories ranging from Celebrate Local and Treat Staff Fairly to the newly introduced Good to Go Award in partnership with Just East.

Commenting on the awards Raymond Blanc said: “The Food Made Good Awards are so critical, recognising the work and commitment of individuals and organisations responsible for bringing new ethics to our food production, and sharing those values in our kitchens and with consumers. 
 
“The awards truly remind us why we are so proud to work in this industry. Food and its production touches every part of our lives; it will define the society and communities of tomorrow, as well as our health and the health of the planet.”
