Seafood Fortnight 2008

September 5th marks the beginning of Seafood Fortnight. Seafood Fortnight (now extended by one week!) is one of the biggest, exciting and most inclusive national events of the year with thousands of seafood businesses and organisations working together to celebrate seafood and the many benefits it offers.

2 a Week

The theme for this year's Seafood Week is '2 a week'. Seafish, who organise the event, will be encouraging people to act on the Food Standards Agency’s recommendation to eat two portions of seafood a week during this years’ two week long celebration.

Competition exit

Fryz have been given the hugely disappointing news that the shop has not progressed any further in this years Fish & Chip Shop of the Year Competition.

We are naturally very disappointed to have exited the competition at the earliest opportunity. Furthermore, this is a particularly bitter pill because by direct comparison with last years nomination forms we had improved on our results by a significant amount - once again our customers believe we have improved!

Only the top 120 customer nomination forms are counted and each form is worth 100 points, giving a possible maximum score of 12,000. Here is how Fryz has fared in the past three competitions:

Frustratingly, despite incredible customer nomination scores, Fryz have failed to make any significant progress in the competition.

We will try again next year! However, we have been cheered up by kind words of encouragement from former national competition winner Mark Petrou of Petrou Brothers fame:

"I am still of the opinion that you are one of the very best operators I have seen in all my travels to different shops. You guys deserve a break. Your shop and your whole ethic to the job makes you perfect ambassadors for the trade."

Petrou Brothers

The Petrou Brothers have reached the 2nd round and Fryz would like to wish them the very best of luck in this years competition.
