  • In celebration of International Fish and Chips Day (Yes, it’s a thing!) the Seafood Industry Australia (SIA) is on the hunt for the nations’ best fish and chips businesses.

“In every town, across every state and territory, people spruik their fish & chips as number one, so let’s put them to the test and crown Australia’s best fish & chippers,” SIA CEO Veronica Papacosta said.

Supporting Aussie seafood suppliers and sellers

“The aim of the awards is to showcase the very best fish & chip businesses around the country, while we celebrate our great Australian seafood, and the fishers who produce all of our favourite seafoods.”

Papacosta said the awards highlight the importance of buying fresh, local seafood and supporting the Australian fishers and the food service industry who’ve had a rough 18 months.

“The good news is, it’s easy as to support our fishers and food service providers and it can be done by just eating some Great Australian Fish & Chips. Buying Australian seafood supports Australian fishing families and regional communities they operate in,” she said.

“The awards are also a good opportunity to highlight the importance of asking for Aussie seafood – even why you’re buying fish & chips. Australian seafood is one of the most sustainable protein sources in the world and our fisheries management is world-class. But, with close to 70 per cent of seafood eaten in Australia imported, it’s important you chat to your server about where your seafood is from.

Papacosta said with lockdowns lifting and summer beckoning now as the perfect time to get out and support theie local fish and chip shop.

“We encourage everyone to take a night or two off from the kitchen, get together with your friends and family and support your local takeaway store and your fishers, as you enjoy some Great Australian Fish & Chips.”
