The National Edible Oil Distributors’ Association (NEODA) was established in 1947. Its members include edible oil and fats refiners, processors, distributors, waste oil collectors (who also sell fresh oil) and cold pressed producers. It also covers manufacturers and suppliers of non-oil products (including batter mix, sausages, packaging, potato preservatives) and other industry bodies.
Fish and Chip lovers across the UK are coming together on Friday 2 June to once again celebrate the nation’s favourite dish and NEODA are proud to be organising this special day again. Following the phenomenal success of the event last year, National Fish & Chip Day 2017 will see people throughout the country celebrating their love of the this iconic meal from fish & chip shops, pub chains, restaurants, retailers, to the fishermen and farmers who provide the sustainable and natural ingredients used to create it. We want to help Fish & Chip shops across the UK benefit from this awareness day and can offer advice on decorating your shops, running special promotions and competitions and generally creating a huge buzz about fish and chips. We are preparing an information pack with guidance on how to get the most from social media and your local and regional press with logos, images and press release templates available for you to use. All this helps to raise awareness, which in turn drives footfall to your shops. In 2016 #nationalfishandchipday began trending on Twitter and Facebook at 9.30 in the morning and the broadcast and print media coverage achieved helped make the footfall experienced by fish & chip shops one of the highest of the year, with some saying it was even busier than Good Friday. More than 28 million people saw, heard or read about National Fish & Chip Day! 2017 looks set to exceed these results and we want to give you support and insight to turn this into a very special Fryday!
Following fierce competition in the UK's best Fish and Chip Shop competition, huge congratulations go to the winner of the Independent Takeaway Fish and Chip Shop for 2017 - Kingfisher Fish and Chips, Plymouth. Huge congratulations to both Nikki and Craig from all the NEODA members.
