1:30pm Friday 10th August 2012 in News
Harbour Lights Fish and Chip Restaurant of Falmouth has joined the fish frying elite from across the UK by scooping the prestigious Fish and Chip Quality Award.
The National Federation of Fish Friers (NFFF), the trade body that represents the nation’s fish and chip shops, runs the scheme as a way of raising standards within the fish and chip trade and enhancing the profile of the industry.
The scheme is a way of rewarding and promoting shops that provide good quality |products and high standards of hygiene, as |well as friers who show a high level of |competence.
To qualify, each shop has to go through an inspection by an NFFF Approved Assessor who assesses the shop’s presentation, hygiene and cleanliness, staff training, equipment, frying and sales skills and most importantly the quality of the cooked product.
Owner, Peter Fraser, was thrilled to hear that Harbour Lights had passed the inspection with a very high mark: “Over the years we have won quite a few awards, but this award was particularly welcome as the whole Harbour Lights team, over 30 of us, worked so hard to achieve it. “We are thrilled that an independent examiner agreed with our thousands of valued customers that we serve very tasty fish and chips”.
Each Fish and Chip Quality Award is valid for two years and retention is dependent on standards being maintained as validated by NFFF officials and appointed assessors.
