A Scottish fish and chip takeaway has launched a glass bottle recycling scheme for its own recipe chippy sauce.
East Coast Fish & Chips in Musselburgh has sold over 6,000 litres of its chippy sauce every year since it opened in 1974.
As part of its ongoing commitment to being more environmentally friendly, the popular takeaway is bottling its own brand condiment and offering customers that return and recycle their empties 50p off their next purchase.
East Coast chippy sauce, which is served in 250ml glass bottles, is proving a big hit with fish and chip fans from Musselburgh, around East Lothian and Edinburgh.
Located just two minutes’ walk from Musselburgh beach on the outskirts of Edinburgh, East Coast is owned and operated by Carlo and Katia Crolla.
The Crolla family has been serving the local community for nearly 50 years. Styles may change, but great flavours, family heritage and warm, friendly service remain as important to Katia and Carlo today as they did 49 years ago.
Carlo Crolla said: “Salt ‘n’ sauce has always been part of the chip shop tradition across this part of Scotland, so we like to honour that tradition with our very own branded East Coast chippy sauce.
“We’re also keen to do our bit to help the environment, so we sell our chippy sauce in glass bottles.”
