We're counting down to National Fish & Chip Day on Friday (or should that be Fryday?) 4th September.

But, seriously, at Pacific West we're busy supporting customers to maximise the special day marking one of the nation's favourite foods. And, here's a few facts and figures around why every food operator should be featuring fish and chips every day of the year! 

Did you know that in a poll of 2000 consumers, the findings of which were featured in The Independent in November 2019, Fish & Chips were reported as the nation's favourite takeaway. Battered fish is six times more popular than battered sausage and our love of a chippy tea easily outstrips other popular takeaways, including Chinese and Indian options. 

Furthermore, in a YouGov poll of 6000 people, Fish & Chips achieved the highest status of appreciation and is featured in the "God Tier" of British foods.  84% of Brits who have tried them say they like them. Fish & Chips features alongside other classic dishes including Yorkshire pudding, the classic Sunday roast and a full English breakfast. All of these are good company for the humble and ever popular Fish & Chips!

So, the question is what fish to feature on your menus? We've got LOTS of ideas for you to try, including the traditional Cod, Hake and Pollock or why not use Fish & Chip Day to try something a little more exotic such as Snapper, Red Mullet or Gurnard. We even have a fantastically popular Fish & Chip Goujon
