A FISH and chip shop in Shetland has been crowned the best in Scotland at a prestigious awards ceremony.
Frankie’s Fish & Chips in Brae will now compete to be land the UK crown of Independent Takeaway Fish and Chip Shop of the Year as part of the 2015 National Fish & Chip Awards.
It is one of ten shops shortlisted across Britain who are bidding for the ultimate title.
Each shop faces a rigorous judging process with assessments on a variety of criteria including product quality, sustainable sourcing policies, marketing initiatives and service. The finalists will now attend a study trip to Norway, organised by award sponsor the Norwegian Seafood Council to see first-hand why the country is regarded as one of the world’s most sustainable fishing nations.
Valerie Johnson and John Gold, owners of Frankie’s Fish and Chips, said: “We are passionate about fish and chips and are fortunate enough to have a great team who share our enthusiasm for all aspects of running the shop.”
The awards recognise the best talent, quality and choice offered by fish and chip businesses across the UK.
