Longs lands a tonne of Plus20 Palm Oil



A Dorset chippy has won a tonne of Plus20 Palm Oil in a free prize draw run by fish and chips wholesaler T. Quality.


Longs Fish & Chips in Bridport, which is owned by Graham and Pauline Davies and managed by Susan Rattenbuy, took delivery of the prize - equivalent to 80 boxes - earlier this week.

Susan, who has managed the takeaway and restaurant in West Street since 2010, commented:  “I’m thrilled! You always hear about other people winning these things but you never expect to win yourself!”

Graham had been considering trying new Plus 20 palm oil and said this prize has given him the opportunity to trial the frying medium in his shops.

Plus20 palm oil was launched by T. Quality in March last year as a cost effective alternative to standard palm oil, boasting a 20% longer life expectancy due to its ability to fry at high temperatures and remain stable for longer in the frying range.

As well as cost savings, the extended Plus20 life is said to give a more consistent colour to food since the same oil is used for longer, and it's completely free from additives, GM material and allergens, making it a versatile frying medium.
