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.
NEODA launched the first ever National Fish and Chip Day on Friday 5th June and what a fantastic success it was! Over 500 shops registered on the NEODA website for point of sale materials, including posters, bunting and leaflets and a marketing toolkit with games, competitions and press release templates. All of this helped fish and chip shops across the country get some fantastic coverage in their local media. Social media also played a key role in the day with the #nationalfishandchipday trending during the afternoon and #fishandchipday featuring all day long. Next year's event will take place on Friday 3rd June 2016 and with the help of some funding from the Seafish Strategic Investment Fund, it looks set to be even bigger and better so don’t miss out on this fantastic opportunity to get involved - please register your details on the website www.nationalfishandchipday.org.uk.
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 2015 - Frankie's Fish and Chips, Brae, Shetland. Congratulations from all the NEODA members.
