Andrew Crook, organiser of the Awards and president of the National Federation of Fish Friers, the sponsor of this category, stated, "Our suppliers form the backbone of the fish and chip industry, often stemming from family businesses that have evolved alongside the industry. Their unwavering support and dedication propel individual shops and elevate the entire sector." He added, "Despite the challenges and setbacks our industry has faced, the strength and resilience afforded by exemplary suppliers like our finalists are invaluable.
