Andrew Crook, President of the National Federation of Fish Friers and awards organiser, lauded Wright as an exemplary ambassador for fish and chips on the global stage. He remarked, "This award highlights Wright's commitment and signals a new chapter for them. We anticipate more remarkable achievements from their team. Congratulations!"

Owner Chantelle Wright said I am completely over the moon with joy! I want to thank the National Federation of Fish Friers, our colleagues, suppliers, family, friends, customers, and, without a doubt, our incredible team. It's a privilege and a source of immense pride for us. This award is the industry's highest accolade! From day one, we have sought to do traditional British fish & chips over here, so we are over the moon.

Sponsorship for this category came from JFK, a Faroese fishery with a century-long heritage known for its sustainable practices and the launch of GADUS, a state-of-the-art vessel designed for eco-friendly fishing. Jógvan Hansen, JFK's Sales and Operations Director, expressed pride in supporting the award and praised Wright's for its pioneering role in promoting fish and chips abroad.

In addition to the award, Wright's has been invited to Norway for an educational trip with Seafood from Norway, offering an in-depth look at sustainable fishing practices crucial for supplying UK shops with premium seafood.

We invite our readers to share their thoughts and comments below on this remarkable achievement for Wright's Fish and Chips and the broader significance of international recognition for traditional British fare.
