One Business on the edge, another saving thousands
Summeris here already and depending which side of the jet stream you are you may be too hot or too wet and damp. What with strange weather on top of all of the other trials and tribulations we have faced over the last few years, it often feels like pushing water uphill in a colander!
One business facing even more than most is the Seapot Café in Ventnor, here on the Isle of Wight. Not only dealing with increased costs in all areas, they are having to deal with the erosion of the coastal path to their delightful café. You can read their story on Pages 44-45 of this issue.
Now is the time of year for all of the UK seaside and tourist businesses to make enough to get through the winter and it is great to hear about those who persevere against all odds.
We also include a tribute to Peter Hill, former CEO of Middleton Foods, who sadly passed away earlier this year. Peter was a stalwart in the Fish & Chip sector and The Peter Hill Award has been launched for newcomers to the Fish & Chip trade and you can find details of how to enter on Page 17.

Sustainability Matters Business Matters Origin Matters
Almost 9 in 10 UK diners understand the importance of sustainable seafood… …but only a quarter know what to look for in a fish and chip shop
Do you know how to communicate this to your customers?
Friers believe sustainably sourced fish is important, but communicating the value of this to customers is a challenge
Norwegian Seafood Council Hosts Study
Trip to Norway, the whitefish nation, for 2023 National Fish and Chip Award Winners
The Norwegian Seafood Council, proudly representing Seafood from Norway, has welcomed the UK’s leading fish and chip shops to the western shores of Norway as part of an educational study trip to showcase cod and haddock – two of the most popular species used by British fish and chip shops – and demonstrate why Norway is credited as a leading whitefish nation.
Dedicated to supporting the UK fish and chip industry, and in continuation of sponsoring the 2023 National Fish & Chip Awards, each category winner was invited to Norway, Ålesund, on a three-day seafood study trip.
The winners’ time in Ålesund provided valuable insight into how Norwegian cod and haddock that fills UK fryers, is responsibly harvested from Norway’s cold, clear waters. Not only did the winners learn about the vital supply chain of sustainable cod and haddock from Norway to the UK, they also had the opportunity to meet with the Norwegian fishing industry and study the science behind the country’s successful fishery management programme. In collaboration with the Norwegian Frozen-At-Sea (NFAS), UK guests were joined by the Norwegian Directorate of Fisheries, the Norwegian Fishing Vessel Owners Association, Sunnmøre and Romsdal Fisheries Sales Organisation, and media representatives.
The action-packed study trip included a voyage onboard Atlantic, one of Norway’s frozen-at-sea vessels, where the award winners experienced first-hand the Norwegian fleet’s world-class sustainable fishing and processing facilities. And a visit to Ellingsøy, the northernmost island in Ålesund, gave guests an opportunity to meet with Brødrene Sperre, one of Norway’s largest producers of wild caught fish, to explore their modern production facilities.
Said Victoria: “It’s important to us to support the industry and help celebrate the successes within, making it a pleasure to host the winners of the 2023 National Fish and Chip Awards on this educational study trip to Norway for knowledge sharing and networking among key industry stakeholders.”
This trip proved an important opportunity for the top ambassadors of the fish frying industry to witness firsthand why origin matters when it comes to sustainable seafood. As a fellow ocean nation, Norway is a proud supplier of seafood to British consumers, with a longstanding relationship providing a bounty of sustainable cod and haddock for the national dish.
Speaking on the value of sustainable seafood, Frank Bakke-Jensen, the Norwegian Director of Fisheries told the group: “Knowledge for how to sustainably manage marine
resources is one of our biggest and most important contributions to a growing world population.”
The 2023 National Fish and Chip Award winners joining this trip included:
• Harlees Fish & Chips, Wimborne Best Multiple Operator of the Year Award Richard Long, Director
• Fish City, Belfast, Fish and Chip Restaurant of the Year John Lavery, Owner
• Fish City, Belfast, Environment and Sustainability Award, Robert Leahy
• The Real Food Café, Tyndrum, From Field to Frier Award Sarah Heward, Founder and Co-owner
• Whitehead’s Fish & Chips, Hornsea, Fish and Chip Takeaway of the Year, Geoff Whitehead, Director
• Lighthouse Fisheries of Flamborough, Flamborough, Best Newcomer Award, Gary Sharples, General Manager
• The Chesterford Group, Bishop’s Stortford, Staff Training and Development Award, Hugh Lipscombe, Chairman
• The Fish Works, Largs, NFFF Quality Accreditation Champion, Tiffany Irvin, Owner
• Henry Colbeck, Supplier of the Year, Callum Bellshaw, Buyer and FAS Fish Category Specialist
Winners were also joined by The National Federation of Fish Friers, organiser of the National Fish & Chip Awards. President of NFFF Andrew Crook, commented:
“The National Fish and Chip Awards are the biggest driver of standards in the fish and chip industry, we also take pride that they have built a strong network for fish and chips across the UK.
“The trip to Norway, bringing together the winners of the 2023 awards, was fantastic. Seeing firsthand the catch methods and processing out at sea – within hours of being caught to lock in that freshness – simply explains why the quality is so good when the fish reaches our shops!”

Lynda Simmons from NEODA spoke with Middletons Foods following this year’s National Fish & Chip Day
Why did you sponsor National Fish & Chip Day this year?
We see National Fish & Chip Day as an excellent way to support the industry and all the shops within it. In these difficult times, every shop in the Country has a chance to be involved on the day and to tap into a collective promotion of all things good about the product. Every shop can get involved, either in a large or small way and every shop can benefit from the work that NEODA puts into the day.
What were the highlights for you?
There were lots this year as we have absolutely no doubt that 2023 was the best year so far for the day. The roadshows were amazing, the new merchandise really stood out and captured the fun part of the day but I thought the posters inviting the shops and members of the public to get involved really helped to get the message across.
What did you do to maximise your sponsorship?
Lots of things! For Middleton’s, the sponsorship package works both ways. It helps us to help the Industry but also allows us to cement our standing as a leading manufacturer in the trade and a supporter of every business big or small. We organised our own charity frying day to support local good causes, called on shops around the Country supplying posters and merchandise as well as supporting all the roadshows and frying events on the actual day. We used our Social Media to give away merch packages, door opening signs and free stock as well as sponsoring the QR prize on the posters. We advertised the day on an electronic advertising banner next to the M6 motorway, pushed the day via our in-house sales team and put links to the downloadable merchandise on our website. Our sales team love the day and everyone enjoys getting involved.
Why should other people sponsor?
The more the merrier. The reach that the day generates cannot be overemphasised for the spend that is involved. As an Industry, we have always wanted to be able to promote Nationally and National Fish & Chip Day gives us the best chance of doing that as a collective. The better the day does, then the better that is for everyone involved.
Would you sponsor again?
We already have! We can’t wait for the involvement around the 80th anniversary of D-Day… it’s going to be really special. Next year’s event will take place on Thursday 6th June 2024.
A quote from Middletons about your involvement?
National Fish & Chip Day is a truly unique way for everyone associated and involved in the Fish and Chip Industry to come together to push everything that is so special about the trade and the dish. People love Fish and Chips, and the day gives us the chance to let the public be involved and to remind them that Fish and Chips and the people that serve them are a National treasure. Get involved and help make the day bigger and better, year on year.
Not all fish is meant to be fried. The best choices are from white fleshed fish with flaky textures such cod and haddock. In order to guarantee that the full flavour of the fish is retained, the Fish and Chip shop owner has to ensure the correct batter is used. Then there is the temperature at which the fish is to be fried, neither too hot nor hot enough. Finally and equally important is the frying medium and that is where Frymax comes in. Frymax is pure white premium palm which is additive free, contains no hydrogenated oil and less than one per cent trans fats. Frymax has a high smoke point which makes it ideal for frying. More importantly Frymax guarantees delicious results every time to bring out the full flavour of your fish.

Loaded fries, dirty fries…
whatever you want to call them, chips as we know and love them have been somewhat transformed thanks to our friends across the pond in the US, who introduced the trend for what’s essentially next level cheesy chips!
The option to sell chips with toppings is a great, creative way for chip shops to offer something which sets them apart from their competition – palates and consumer expectations are changing, and this style of offering on a menu can really help captivate consumers and encourage them to try something different. The concept is simple really, so upgrading your menu to offer such an item isn’t particularly difficult; whether they’re sold as a meal, accompaniment or side dish.
Using the chip as a base – whether it’s a thinner French fry; a heartier triple-cooked chip; or a waffle-style lattice potato – it’s all about what you do with the potato to make it have that added appeal. We have several products which perfectly accompany chips to help operators embrace the trend and upsell a standard chip portion. Our innovative range of Gluten Free Chip Seasonings is a fantastic way to add excitement to chips. With a choice of three flavours to choose from – Piri Piri, Smokey or Chinese Salt & Chilli – the flavours are authentic tasting and really add a little something to menus. They’re a great way to add a global flavour profile – take the Piri Piri Gluten Free Chip Seasoning for example, which is a carefully blended mix of salts and spices that delivers an authentic Portuguese taste.
Pre-blended to ensure quality and consistency, these simple-to-use tubs of seasonings add a bespoke twist
to chips, which customers will love. What’s more, as the name suggests, the range is gluten free; so suitable for people with coeliac disease. With demand for gluten free foods continuing to grow, by choosing to use products made by Middleton Foods operators can be assured of their dedication and commitment to food quality, safety and responsibility as they cater for an increasing number of consumers who have specific dietary requirements. All seasonings are made in the UK at our gluten free production facility. Each product is certified by Coeliac UK. The collection of seasonings is also free from GM materials and artificial colours, and suitable for vegetarians and vegans. Piri Piri Gluten Free Chip Seasoning is available in a 2kg tub, with both the Smokey and Chinese Salt & Chilli Gluten Free Chip Seasonings available in 2.5kg tubs.
For sauces, our new Cheese Sauce is a versatile product and is ideal for maximising sales. Use for dirty fries, cheesy chips or simply as a staple sauce for a variety of menu options; such as a pour-over sauce for burgers and Southern Fried Chicken. Made with natural colours and flavours, the Cheese Sauce has a rich savoury, buttery flavour. It’s simple to make just by adding water to the mix and bringing to the boil; and its consistency can be adjusted to make it a thicker or thinner sauce, depending on preference. Hold in a bain marie for ease of use.

Liam Gallagher was slightly too early to spot Bigfoot at Toll Bar Fish and Chips, Stoney Middleton when he dropped in for a battered sausage, but that didn’t stop him enjoying a McWhinney’s Premium Sausage. It is a shame the two were not able to meet, as Bigfoot would have got his 15 minutes of fame on the BBC News front page! Anyway, those are the breaks and he just had to roll with it
The Big McWhinney’s Giveaway is well over the halfway point now with more than £65,000 worth of sausage and chips being given away to date to mark the company’s 125 th anniversary. The campaign has been a resounding success with shops the length and breadth of the UK taking part in the “Buy a fish and chips, get a sausage and chips free” promotion. The public’s reaction to the offer has been overwhelmingly positive, especially at a time with costs for all households rising.
Scott McWhinney reacted to the response: “This has been the first major campaign I have worked on and it has been so rewarding to see the positivity surrounding it. We have had the pleasure of visitingmany of the shops that have taken part in the giveaway, which is always a great experience. Those in the fish and chip industry are exceptionally hard working with passion to match – I thank each and every person who is helping us celebrate this milestone.
The campaign has been such a success that we have
decided to carry it through into 2024, running itwith one shop on a monthly basis. There are still some spaces a vailable for the 125th anniversary celebration and I would encourage any McWhinney’s customers to get in touch to secure a place.”
Recent participating shops have included Hemingway’s Fish and Chips (Hendy), Luke’s Traditional Fish and Chips (Cambridge) and David’s Fish and Chips (Brixham).
David’s celebrated their building’s 100th year as a chip shop last year and Toll Bar Fish and Chips is located in a Toll House which was built in 1840. These shops are by no means alone with their pedigree and this highlights the important role the fish and chip industry, a genuine British institution, has played, and continues to play, in the UK. There is no doubt that times have been trying over the past few years, but the resilience of the fish and chip community should not be doubted.
Any shop that uses McWhinney’s and wants to be put themselves forward for a spot in the celebration should email email@example.com
You have WHAT with your fish & chips?!
People across the country celebrated their love of fish & chips as they came together on National Fish & Chip Day in June. From fish and chip shops, pub chains, restaurants, retailers, to the fishermen and farmers who provide the sustainable and natural ingredients used to create it, the nation enjoyed this iconic family favourite!
The Great British Fish and Chip Survey 2023
To coincide with this year’s National Fish and Chip Day we wanted to find out how the nation liked theirs! The National Fish and Chip day team conducted a nationwide, online survey called The Great British Fish and Chip Survery 2023. It ran from April 13, 2023 until May 22, 2023.
The findings of the survey are below, showing exactly how many people opt for salt and vinegar on their fish and chips and order mushy peas to accompany it.
Favourite thing to have on your fish and chips?
The majority of people said that salt and vinegar was their most favourite things to have on their fish and chips. A staggering 64% of respondents said salt and vinegar was the clear favourite thing to have on their fish and chips. This was followed by just salt chosen by 16%, beating ketchup with 5%.
Favourite thing to have WITH your fish and chips?
Mushy peas was a clear winner when it came to what people wanted to eat alongside their fish and chips, with 40% opting for the accompaniment. The second favourite nationally was a tie between having nothing and just enjoying fish and chips on their own and adding Tartare Sauce both of which 13% opted for.
Favourite fish to have with your chips?
Over half of people surveyed (55%) admitted that cod was their most favourite fish. This was followed by Haddock with 38%. Scotland bucks this trend with 72% of Scots choosing haddock ahead of cod. Yorkshire and Humber also placed haddock ahead of cod as their fish of choice.
Eat in or Takeaway?
The survey found that 89% of people prefer to take their fish and chips away and only 4% would get their fish and chips delivered showing that there is something we all love about visiting our local chippy and them cooking it fresh while we wait!
Favourite place to eat fish chips?
The favourite place to eat them when they do is at home (43%) closely followed by enjoying them at the seaside which pulled in 34% of the votes.
How important is the MSC Blue Tick standard for sustainable fishing to you?
There was fairly even split on whether the MSC Blue Tick
was important with 37% saying they would only buy fish and chips from shops with the Blue Tick and 39% saying it doesn’t influence their choice of shop.
What do you call the crispy bits of batter? What a can of worms this question was! By far the most popular was Scraps!
But these are some of the other popular names! What do you call yours?!
Ooh – Grab and Go
The people of the East of England were more partial to Just Salt with their fish and chips than the rest of the UK with 20% choosing that.
A bread roll to go with fish and chips was most popular in the North West with 24% of people in the area choosing that.
More people chose curry sauce in the South East than anywhere else in the UK.
In Scotland more people (44%) chose Tartare Sauce as their favourite accompaniment…above mushy peas.
Plaice was more popular in London than any other region.
If you would like specific results for your region or other national facts from the survey please call Josie on 07734 050238 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Interviews with national award-winning Fish and Chip Shops and industry experts and putting you in touch with some amazing shops in your area can also be arranged.
What products work best as grab-and-go?
“The entire point of grab-and-go items is to save time and boost convenience for those that have not got the opportunity to sit down and enjoy a relaxing food item. Crucially, grab-and-go items should also be quick and easy for the caterer to prepare, so that the customer can order and be on their way in the minimum time possible. With this in mind, Shmoo Milkshakes are designed to be quick and easy to make and can be served in their own branded cups for ultimate convenience. Simply combine a scoop of Shmoo powder with water to create a creamy and thick textured delight ready to go. With a multitude of different flavours including White Chocolate and Raspberry, Banana and Cappuccino to appeal to all consumers, you can be sure to receive plenty of repeat business.”
At what time/s of day are grab and go items most popular?
“The popularity of Shmoo milkshakes as grab-and-go items can vary depending on several factors. However, in general, Shmoo milkshakes tend to be most popular during the morning and afternoon hours. During the morning rush, people may not have the time to sit down and enjoy a traditional breakfast. A Shmoo milkshake can be a delicious and quick option to grab on the go. Similarly, during the afternoon, people may want a sweet and refreshing treat to give them a pick-me-up for the rest of the day. Shmoo milkshakes are a convenient and delicious option that can be enjoyed quickly and easily. Of course, different locations and customer bases may have different patterns of demand for Shmoo milkshakes as grab-and-go items. For the busy workers of the day with a limited amount of time for lunch, there is often a big rush to grab food and drink before returning to the office or work site. Shmoo drinks are particularly popular alongside a nice savoury lunch, as a sweet refreshment to finish the meal off.”
Bisto Launches its Love British Food Fortnight Guide to Inspire Chefs
and Spotlight UK Suppliers
Bisto has launched a Love British Food Guide to help publicans and pub chefs celebrate UK suppliers and drive profits from the national celebration, which takes place from 16th September to 1st October.
One of a series of guides, it includes consumer insight, tips and expert-led advice from award winning chef and patron of The Cricketer’s Arms, Harry Kodagoda. The digital booklet also features six flavour-packed recipes created by Harry, which pub chefs can incorporate into their seasonal menus, such as a Guinness and Bisto braised beef cheek with Maris Piper mash and glazed vegetables and a twist on the Sunday nut roast, accompanied by Bisto.
The Love British Food Fortnight Guide gives insight into consumer dining habits, with research reporting 65% of consumers are more likely to visit a venue which highlights its ingredients are sourced from British farmers*. Plus, 56% of consumers say they are likely to pay extra for a dish where the main food item has been sourced from a British farmer*. The research demonstrates the value in publicans communicating their commitment to local food sourcing to customers. Highlighting the opportunity for pubs, Harry Kodagoda, comments:
“With the right menu offer and events, British Food Fortnight can be a real business booster, both during the fortnight and beyond. Use it to remind customers of the amazing British suppliers your pub partners with.”
Sarah Robb, foodservice marketing manager, Premier Foods Foodservice
“As one of the UK’s largest food manufacturers and home to some of the nation’s much-loved brands, we understand what drives customer loyalty. This Love British Food Guide is full of tips and menu inspiration to help pub operators maximise the big opportunity brought by this national celebration of the diverse and delicious food the UK produces.”
Alexia Robinson, Founder of Love British Food explains the benefits for businesses in participating in this event.
“So many pubs take part in British Food Fortnight and every year they report huge benefits to the pub as a result; great customer feedback, good local PR and, for many, increased footfall and takings. People love a British food menu promotion! Our advice to pubs is to use British Food Fortnight to shout about and showcase the British producers you support, local and further afield; or use the event as an opportunity to introduce a new supplier or a themed seasonal menu.”

The Flatbread Evolution
PitaPot: The Evolution of Flatbreads and the Birth of a New Bun
From plain flatbreads
In the world of sandwiches and street food, innovation is always Welcome
Introducing PitaPot, a groundbreaking product that combines the convenience of a pita bread with the portability of a container. Developed by CHASIOTIS SA, one of Greece’s leading flatbread manufacturers, PitaPot is set to revolutionize the way we enjoy our favorite handheld meals.
CHASIOTIS SA, established in 1980, boasts a rich heritage and a global presence, exporting its flatbreads to over 30 countries worldwide. With their extensive experience, they have mastered the art of flatbread production and have now created an ingenious product that takes the concept to new heights.
To folded flatbreads to the ultimate solution
The production technology behind PitaPot was developed in-house, showcasing the innovative spirit of CHASIOTIS SA. The result is a fully-baked flatbread dough, soft and fluffy, shaped like an edible pot. The PitaPot is open only on one side, with toasted internal and external wall surfaces. This unique design creates the perfect “nest” for doner kebab, gyros, pulled pork, and other street food sandwiches that are known for their generous fillings and delicious sauces.
The shape of the PitaPot, along with the thickness of the dough walls and the toasted internal surfaces, ensures an efficient and mess-free way of holding food. The internally toasted dough walls act as a barrier, preventing liquid from penetrating and keeping the fillings securely contained. Especially, PitaPot addresses the limitations found in the pita bread/pita pocket category. It eliminates the need to use a knife to open a half-moon pita pocket and overcomes the issue of thin walls that can’t accommodate ‘heavy’ fillings and sauces. This innovation not only enhances the eating
experience but also reduces the risk of drips and spills commonly associated with traditional sandwich carriers.
PitaPot can be considered an evolution of flatbreads, introducing a new level of convenience and portability. By combining the characteristics of a pita bread and a container, CHASIOTIS SA has created a self-contained meal option that caters to our busy, on-the-go lifestyles.
While PitaPot represents a specific application of flatbreads, it exemplifies the innovative ways in which this traditional bread can adapt to meet modern needs and preferences. Its unique design and functionality make it a truly versatile and practical option, surpassing sliced bread, flatbreads, folded flatbreads, baguettes, wraps, and paninis in terms of ease of use and convenience.
Furthermore, PitaPot’s appeal extends beyond its innovative design. It is a fully baked product that is vegan and sugar-free, catering to diverse dietary preferences. To enjoy a PitaPot, simply heat it, on both sides, on a grill or a non-stick frying pan for approximately 2 minutes. There is no need to heat the hollowed-out interior, as the crumb remains soft and fluffy, ready to be filled with your favorite ingredients.
Recognizing the uniqueness and potential of PitaPot, the product is protected by registered designs in the European Union and the United Kingdom. It has also secured its place as a European Union Trade Mark (EUTM), ensuring its distinction in the market.
PitaPot is a game-changer for both the foodservice and retail sectors. It offers a simple and hassle-free way to create and enjoy mess-free sandwiches. Whether you’re a busy professional grabbing a quick lunch or a street food enthusiast craving an authentic experience, PitaPot delivers on taste, convenience, and innovation.

Loaded launches: Santa Maria’s new dirty and decadent solution for operators
With ‘treating’ the number one mission for eating and drinking out, as consumers continue to seek out affordable treats that are kind on the purse strings, and 62% of consumers looking to spend money on experiences rather than material things, there is an opportunity for out-of-home operators to drive revenue by offering an elevated food experience through simple twists and upgrades.
Santa Maria, the nation’s leading out-of-home food provider, today launched its latest solution – Loaded – a range of dirty and decadent downloadable recipes that are designed specifically to drive footfall and increase spend per head across operators in food-to-go, casual dining, pubs and bars.
The Loaded concept is based around three core categories – burgers, fries and nachos – chosen for their popularity amongst consumers, operational simplicity and versatility for ‘loading up’.
Each category has a range of irresistible loaded recipes that are oozing with flavour. The recipes are on a sliding scale, varying in complexity, from taking existing dishes and adding simple seasoning or spiked salsa through to fully loaded recipes that include a variety of new products. It offers operators choice in how they customise their menus and stand out amongst competitors.
Created by Santa Maria’s chef team, the recipes include inspiration from global-flavours and nostalgic home comforts and also offer serving suggestions that bring a sense of theatre to the table.
Santa Maria’s Taste Creator, Barney MacAdam, says: “We’re conscious of the challenges the hospitality sector is starkly facing with rising operating costs, increasing food prices, staff shortages and the cost of living impacting their customer’s back pockets. We’ve worked hard to ensure our Loaded solution will work for every operator, despite these challenges.
“The categories are based around some of the most affordable dishes on menus - dishes that the vast majority of operators
serve anyway. The scaleable recipes mean operators can choose which loaded dish they put on their menu, enabling them to work around any staff or skill shortages on their chef team. We’ve also weaved in our pre-made spice blends, rubs, seasoning and sauces - making the recipes as effortless as possible.
“As well as the free recipes, we’re offering operators the opportunity to book a free demo for our famous cheddar cheese sauce, which is the hero product of the Loaded concept. It’s packed full of flavour, smooth, oozy and indulgent and works incredibly well across so many of the loaded dishes.
“Of course, one of the main appeals of loaded dishes is the additional revenue opportunity they present as operators can charge more for them than regular, plain dishes. There is also a profit calculator so operators can input their recipe costs and RRP and understand what margins and profit the dish will deliver. We’re helping operators become laser-focused on delivering both a great dining experience for consumers and also strong profits that directly benefit their bottom line.”
With over a third of consumers purchasing a burger when they eat out, the finger-licking Loaded recipes include chicken, beef and plant-based options. ‘The Mac Daddy Smash’ features a beef burger seasoned in steakhouse rub, topped with Mac n Cheese, beef barbacoa and drizzled with a bourbon BBQ sauce. Or why not bring some true American style to the menu with ‘The Nashville Hot’, a hot and spicy chicken burger together with lettuce, buffalo sauce, bacon drizzled in honey, cheddar cheese sauce and jalapeños, complete with onion rings and a red chilli on the top of the bun.
As more than half of consumers prefer to order loaded fries over standard fries, operators can really play around with topping combinations. Why not bring Asian fusion flavours and create the Korean BBQ fries, loaded with red chilli and ginger seasoned chicken, Kimchi slaw, Korean BBQ sauce and Sriracha mayo, garnished with wasabi, sesame and coriander. Or the Dirty as Cluck Fries, which bring the ever-popular BBQ flavour to the menu, with fries and chicken pieces seasoned with steakhouse rub flavouring and drizzled in Chipotle sauce.
83% of consumers say they would order nachos when eating out, proving the popularity of this Mexican dish is showing no signs of abating. Recipes include Cheeseburger and Nacho Smash Up, which features nachos loaded with steakhouse seasoned burger bite-sized pieces, cheddar cheese sauce, diced gherkins, crispy onions, topped with burger sauce and chives. Or operators could try Trash Can Nachos – classic nachos, topped with mince beef, salsa, guacamole, sour cream, cheddar cheese sauce and jalapeños served in a trash can.
The Loaded solution also includes ideas on how operators can tap into the key trend of creating a food experience for consumers, such as the Cheese Crown Double Bacon Burger which features a pastry ring filled with cheddar cheese sauce balanced on top which can be lifted to pour down over the burger.
Nick Minchin, Marketing Manager for UK & IRE, Santa Maria, says: “Our development chefs are experienced at concepting dishes that appeal to convenience-led consumers seeking affordable food experiences when both dining in or taking out. The new Loaded concept provides solutions for all operators from quick-serve eateries, pubs and restaurants. Alongside the recipes, operators also have access to insights, our profit calculator, signature recipes, tips on how to drive spend, digital assets and imagery, which is all free to download and use.”

Delivering great-tasting fries, which are crunchy on the outside and fluffy on the inside, is an art form. The right oil, the correct cooking time, the perfect cooking temperature and the best hot hold are all essential ingredients in delivering the best French Fry to your customer
Delivering the fries in peak condition requires the Fry Dump, one that can fit in with the needs and limitations of the restaurant.
Introducing the Vizu Super Fries, although not able to leap tall buildings with a single bound, the newest addition to the Vizu Fry Dump range has a fry dump around 1.6 times larger than the Vizu Mega Fries. Great for super busy locations.
Four powerful halogen heat lights mounted above the dump area, matched with a 500W heat mat underneath the dump area, deliver sufficient heat to ensure the fries retain their delicious crunch. As an energy-saving feature, the lights are switchable, reducing energy costs during quiet periods.
Just like its sidekick, the Super Fries features conveniently located storage for packaging and a salt shaker. An integral ample sized ambient storage cupboard is ideal for storing more packaging. The glass and bagging rack can easily be swapped from left to right to allow the unit to be positioned next to the fryers.
With six fry dumps in our range we have the right one for your business.

A Hot Opportunity!
Hot dogs have always been considered an easy-to-eat snack, but following on from the burger trend, they are now classified by 1 in 4 consumers as a “treat1” too!
The out-of-home eating market is a challenging place to be right now. With the cost-of-living crisis, ingredient costs and inflation having recently peaked, consumers are being very sensitive about their spending2. Lantmännen Unibake’s Americana brand has been reviewing the market and how their products can best support operators. Beyond the classic burger offering, that is already on most outlets’ menus, the real hero of this current economic climate can be found in a versatile, quality, quick and cost-effective Hot Dog!
With summer holidays just around the corner, operators do not want to miss out on the sales opportunity this time of year brings. Americana’s research showed more than a third (36%) of respondents are most likely to order a Hot Dog at a music festival or event, and just under a third (30%) said that at a tourist attraction, such as a zoo or a theme park, is where they will enjoy a Hot Dog. With over a fifth (18%) of consumers buying a Hot Dog because it is comparatively cheaper than other items on a menu, price point is key; over half of consumers would pay £4.00£7.00 for a hot dog out of home.
The research shows that 26% of consumers order a Hot
Dog once a week or more. Whereas it was once considered to be a main meal item, this has now diminished to just 17% of consumers. 29% of consumers enjoy a Hot Dog as a snack and 25% consider a Hot Dog a treat, demonstrating the evolution of consumption occasions and the growth of the treat and snack opportunity.
Almost half (41%) said that ease of consumption is the main purchase driver, and for a fifth (20%) of respondents, Hot Dogs are their preferred fast-food option. Speed of service is vital according to over 60% of consumers and 78% saying that the quality of the hot dog roll is important to them when purchasing.
Sam Winsor, Marketing Manager at Americana, comments: “The food to go sector is forecasted to grow by 4% in 20233. Both QSR’s and pubs & restaurants have gained a 29% share for lunch occasions4 and there has been 54% growth in buying at the operator for dinner occasions5. This tells us that, although market conditions are tough, there is opportunity within the marketplace for the right offering. Whilst reviewing the out of home market data alongside our new research, we can see the opportunity that Hot Dogs can provide operators. By
capitalising on the emerging trend for Hot Dog snacking and treating. Just look at how this has developed in other Scandinavian countries like Sweden, and Denmark.
“Now is undoubtedly the time for QSR and fast-food operators to dial up their Hot Dog offering. It is imperative that they serve a good quality product that is full of flavour – and quickly – to capitalise on the opportunity.”
Americana’s research reveals some interesting nuances when it comes to how consumers like their Hot Dog to be served. Most opt for a top sliced hot dog roll (73%) over a side slice (27%), with 56% preferring the sausage and filling to be contained within the hot dog roll rather than poking out the end.
The perfect Hot Dog must be packed full of flavour (32%), fresh and served quickly (27%) and loaded with toppings (18%). In fact, cheese (53%), caramelised onions (41%) and bacon (35%) as the top three hot dog toppings. The perfect Hot Dog roll must be made with quality ingredients (30%), robust enough to hold all the ingredients (29%) and soft and spongy (24%) just like an Americana Hot Dog Roll. Tomato ketchup (57%), mustard (33%) and BBQ (30%) were the top chosen sauces and over half of consumers (52%) choosing American inspired street food as their favourite Hot Dog flavour. This provides outlets with the opportunity to customise their hot dog offering with the option of upselling to a premium option or seasonal LTO to drive sales without adding complexity and slowing down the kitchen.

Against all Odds
Over the last few years, all businesses have had so much to cope with including Brexit, Covid, global warming, the war in Ukraine and the resulting impact of product shortages and food inflation. It’s enough to make entrepreneurs of small businesses, in particular, think, “Why do I bother?”
Sister and brother, Kerry and James O’Reilly, are co-owners of the Seapot Café in Ventnor on the Isle of Wight, a quaint little café on the promenade coastal path just east of Ventnor fishing harbour, enthusiastically frequented by locals and tourists alike for their delicious range of home-made dishes with James sourcing the products and Kerry busy in the kitchen.
Kerry takes up the story,
“We purchased a council public convenience and boat bay, converted it to the Seapot and opened in 2014. Because of the remote location on the coastal path, we have a difficult time getting deliveries due to our location but this is also a pro point as there are seldom vehicles to block access. The café gives visitors and walkers the opportunity to relax with 180o vistas of the English Channel in Ventnor’s micro climate.
We have a tiny kitchen and servery and it is like a Tardis inside, people often marvel that we produce such lovely dishes in such a tight space.
Unfortunately, the Isle of Wight Council closed part of
the Esplanade last November after a large hole and cracks appeared in the seawall between the town and the Seapot café. Since then, sections of the promenade have collapsed into the sea. The closure along the seafront walkway and lack of diversion signs, has meant that many people abandon the walk entirely or don’t know how to continue.
Signs were promised but didn’t materialise. Walkers leaving Ventnor to walk towards Bonchurch face the hard closure of the path, and no signs to direct them up and around to Seapot.
As a result, we have very little passing trade now. The Shanklin to Ventnor walk was popular with a variety of demographics but now can only be achieved if you’re fit and agile involving climbing up and down many steps to navigate the route.
We did think that we may have to close down for this season as it was actually costing us money to open. However, the recent Isle of Wight County Press article was very helpful in letting people know we were still there, and in fact that there was anything there, so we have gained some new customers too.
We are open 11-3 (last orders) serving sandwiches, deli boards and ploughman’s/fisherman’s lunches, hot and cold drinks, and are licensed to serve alcohol. We are open every day except Fridays when we have a day off. Friday was always remarkably quiet for us as it’s a short-break changeover day and other cafes close on other days, so there’s always somewhere great for people to go.”
As a regular visitor, I can highly recommend the 1/2Kg of Moules, locally caught Ventnor Crab or a slice of their delicious fresh cream and strawberry Victoria Sponge, just the thing to eat when you visit Victoria’s Isle of Wight. Wherever possible local Isle of Wight produce and drinks are served.
At long last, and on a brighter note, a large excavator arrived in Ventnor recently, ahead of work on the Eastern Cliffs promenade, and was escorted down the switchback Shore Hill by a banksman before 8.30am so that no road closures were be needed.
Its job will be to install around 165, 12-metre long ‘king piles’ in front of the existing sea defences which have partially failed. This will then be backfilled and capped with concrete to encapsulate the badly corroded sheet piles. Works will begin at the western end of the seawall failure (by the skatepark). Each section will be completed individually before moving further east.
It’s the toughest challenge yet for this popular cafe on a beautiful Isle of Wight seafront walkway and Kerry added, “This has had a massive impact. We are at least 75 per cent down and we are only busy now because someone put a post on Facebook urging people to come and support us. Last week it was dead.
“The immediate prognosis for us is not good. This is our tenth season and we have survived a burglary and the Covid pandemic, but this is our toughest challenge yet, especially at a time when the economy is as it is.”

The two new flavours mean the innovative range of culinary glazes now comprises fifteen varieties; offering caterers a comprehensive choice of seasonings inspired by some of the world’s most popular cuisines

longer. Oven-bake, grill or BBQ in accordance with the meat’s required cooking time. Juices from the meat will be drawn out by the glaze, making meat extra succulent and tasty, with a sauce-like appearance.

For chefs interested in learning and perfecting cooking over an open flame, Jestic Foodservice Solutions ran two free masterclasses in partnership with Mibrasa, a leading producer of charcoal ovens and grills.

Valentine equips operators to handle food allergies
Allergen awareness and the subsequent debate surrounding this key topic are never far from hitting the headlines in national newspapers and television programmes. Now, in a move to support operators and reduce the risk of cross-contamination, Valentine is introducing its range of Allergen Control Fryers.
Part of the company’s renowned Evolution series, the Allergen Control Fryers come in two variants, a standard pumped filtration model and a turbo pumped filtration model for rapid temperature recovery and greater output. The twin pan basket design, complete with independent filtration systems delivers simple, efficient filtering to reduce the risk of crosscontamination and prolong the life of the cooking oil.
A comprehensive understanding of allergen control and full compliance is crucial in a commercial kitchen. With a recent debate in Parliament, allergens are a common topic for discussion on local and national news and a key area of focus for environmental health officers and the Food Standard Agency (FSA), compliance to allergen legislation is essential.
“From widespread conversation around the use of allergen products in commercial kitchens to the action being taken to improve allergen labelling across the foodservice sector, the legal obligations faced by caterers cannot be ignored. Whether it’s compliance with the FIR regulations or the proposed Owen’s Law, or the continually updated guidance from the FSA, caterers must understand how equipment impacts allergen controls and the management of crosscontamination risks within their kitchen.”
Caroline Benjamin, Director at Food Allergy Aware
It’s in minimising the risk of cross-contamination that the
Valentine Allergen Control Fryers come into their own. Using entirely separate fry pans, each pressed from a single sheet of stainless steel to enhance durability and aid cleaning and with completely independent filtration systems, oil from each pan is kept entirely separate. For added usability, the entire system is colour coded as standard, including the basket, oil discharge pipe, filter basket and filter itself –helping operators to identify which pan is used for example, for gluten-containing and gluten-free recipes.
On the Allergen Control Fryers, Steve Elliott, Sales Director at Valentine and CuisinEquip comments:
“There is no doubt that allergen control is vital in today’s professional kitchen environment. From using ingredients from reputable suppliers to correct labelling on packaging and on menus, customers are, quite rightly, demanding clarity when dining out.
By introducing our Allergen Control Fryers as part of our ever-popular Evolution Series, caterers can further minimise the risk of cross-contamination in their kitchens. Using entirely separate pans and pumped filtration, the Valentine Allergen Control fryers allow operators to confidently serve their customers, confident that their food is safe for those with dietary requirements to consume and complies to current legislation.”
In addition to the colour-coded accessories that come with the Allergen Control Fryers, operators can choose from a range of genuine accessories, including splash guards, batter bowls, fish plates and additional baskets. As with the other models in the Valentine equipment portfolio, the Allergen Control Fryers come as standard with a three-year parts and labour warranty and a lifetime warranty on the pan.

Knowles Transport has purchased a new electric truck, a first for the fleet and one of the first hauliers in the country to run an electric truck, setting an exciting precedent for the future of the business.
The Volvo FE Electric is now on the road and running on a local collection and delivery schedule.
Knowles was initially running a three-week trial of the Volvo FE Electric to establish its viability as part of the Knowles fleet. Following a positive response from drivers and alleviated worries about range during the trial, Knowles was enthusiastic to invest in the 19T vehicle. Knowles has also invested in a 150kWh supercharger that is capable of charging the vehicle within two hours.
The Volvo FE Electric features twin electric motors producing 225kWh and 850Nm torque with a Volvo 2-speed gearbox. The total energy storage of the vehicle is 265kWh which helps the truck to maintain a 200Km range. The truck is a 4x2 wheeled 23ft curtainside fitted with a tail lift to aid deliveries. Featuring lane keeping assist and adaptive cruise control, the FE Electric provides a smooth ride for both occupants and cargo thanks to its front and rear air suspension setup.
“This is Knowles putting our money where our mouth is. said Alex Knowles, Managing Director of Knowles
Transport. “There are plenty out their marketing their sustainability credentials without backing it up with investment, Knowles is not one of them. We are really excited about this step into the future we are making with our new Volvo FE Electric, All the drivers in our fleet were keen to take part in our three-week trial earlier this year. This new electric truck will be the first of many for Knowles as we push forward on our road to net zero.”
The truck will be run on a local collection and delivery schedule due to its size and capabilities. Its short wheelbase (only 5500mm) and nimble handling make it ideal for urban environments. This along with the electric powertrain means no noise or carbon pollution will occur from the vehicle keeping towns and cities quiet and clean.
“The Volvo FE Electric will provide a perfect urban platform for Knowles, the 200km range of the vehicle makes it limited in its long-range capabilities however it proves ideal for collection and delivery within the region where it will be applied. Our investment in a 150kWh charging unit on the site at which this vehicle is based allows us to charge the vehicle in two hours, making this operable over two shifts if required,” concluded Alex.
Knowles has been extremely stringent in its fleet replacement programme which sees older trucks replaced with newer more fuel-efficient vehicles, the Volvo FE Electric provides an added boost to this campaign.
Never one to rest on its laurels, Knowles recently looked to further develop its commitment to reduce carbon emissions and work towards Net Zero as well as to both better understand its current footprint and to develop accurate emissions reporting for their customers as part of its service offering.

Frontline International Smart Oil Management saves time and money at Marstons Chicken Shop
Gregory Atkinson, commercial director at the busy family-owned takeaway, explains how the system is boosting efficiency
Established in Huddersfield in 1985, Marstons Chicken Shop has become a renowned institution across the local area, due largely to the high-quality food it offers, along with friendly, speedy service. Producing large quantities of fried chicken and chips every day, the kitchen goes through a lot of cooking oil – so managing the use and disposal of it is vital to the smooth, profitable running of the business.
“Changing the oil in the fryers regularly, and dealing with big volumes of waste oil, used to be a problem for us,” says Gregory. “We had 60-litre drums for collecting the waste – and these were extremely heavy, so difficult to handle. Also, there was no way of changing the oil quickly. It was all done manually, and we couldn’t do it during service. We had to wait till after 9pm, when we were closed.
“We would fill six drums a week. And, as the recycling collections were weekly – and we don’t have that much spare indoor space – we had to leave the drums outside. Even though they were fenced off, they would still be stolen, for the recycling value of the oil.”
How Frontline solves these problems
“Now, with our Smart Oil Management System, all our waste oil goes automatically into one tank. The collections are still weekly, but the tank holds as much as the six drums. And it takes up much less floor space, due to its vertical design, so we can store it securely indoors – which means we’re no longer losing recycling income through theft.
“Oil changes are much quicker and easier too. It now takes just 15 minutes to empty and refill a fryer, so we can do it mid-service if we need to, even when we’re really busy. That saves us about six hours a week, which we can spend preparing food for the next service, rather than trying to avoid getting messy with used cooking oil!
“As well as saving time, the system’s automated oil changing means the oil we use is always in the best condition. That in turn keeps the quality of our fried food consistently high, which is obviously critical, and the main reason our customers keep coming back. Plus, the system
ensures we change or top up the oil only when we need to – and with cooking-oil prices being so high these days, that’s saving us a lot of money.”
Choosing the right system
“We’ve worked with Jestic Foodservice Solutions since 2016. They supply most of our equipment, including Henny Penny fryers. So when we were looking for a solution to our oilmanagement problem, we talked to them first. We’d seen what the likes of McDonald’s and Five Guys were doing, but we needed to know what would be right for us. We went to the test kitchen in Manchester to run through the options, and bought the Frontline system early in 2022.
“We’ve known for years that Jestic don’t just install the product and wave goodbye. You get all the after-sales help you need – and with this equipment, they provided training for everyone in the team. They came here to do it, so we could all learn how to use the system in exactly the right way for our kitchen, and see at firsthand how to get the most benefit from it.”
For Jestic Foodservice Solutions, setting up the Frontline International system at Marstons Chicken Shop was part of an ongoing relationship. “We were delighted to help Gregory and his team get up and running with Smart Oil Management,” comments Michael Eyre, Product Director. “It’s a key part of the process for high-volume fried-food businesses – so, having already supplied four Henny Penny pressure fryers and a Henny Penny Evolution Elite, along with holding equipment at Marstons, it was great to see the quality of the cooking being matched by efficiency in managing the oil with the Frontline storage tank and pump station.”

Thermopen is mightier
Electronic Temperature Instruments Ltd (ETI) was founded by Miriam and Peter Webb MBE in 1983 and is this year celebrating its 40th year in business. Over the years, ETI has developed a worldwide reputation as a manufacturer and supplier of quality food temperature monitors and sensors, including the Thermapen. Its Thermapen One thermometer is widely used among commercial kitchens and caterers, and Michelin-starred chefs remain amongst its top buyers. The product is also featured on MasterChef, Great British Menu, and used in Buckingham Palace.
Over the past two years, Peter Webb has handed control of the business over to his three children, Claire, Lisa and Jason, the latter now the company’s managing director.
However, it’s not always been plain sailing over the past 38-years. Peter Webb comments: “I was told by a bank manager, Mr Scott, who was quite well-known locally, that they wouldn’t lend me the £2,000 I needed to fund the
business. He said to me ‘I don’t think your business will ever stand up’. He knew my dad really well and lent money to him in the past but didn’t want to know about this.”
At this point, Peter was running ETI in a shed which took up around a third of his garden at the time. It wasn’t until Edwina Currie went on TV and said that every egg has got salmonella in it. Suddenly, everyone was taking the temperature of their food to ensure there wasn’t any danger from salmonella, and then from here ETI took off. Its latest Thermapen reads temperatures in just one second and is arguably the fastest and most accurate of its kind on the market.
ETI stands as a proud British exporter and manufacturer, and the success of Thermapen has led it to three Queen’s Awards in Enterprise for International Trade during the last decade. It has also been fortunate enough to win a Queen’s Award for Enterprise for Innovation in 2018, as well as numerous local and national accolades over the years.

Following a period of sustained growth, the Unox UK team has grown by more than 50%, from 25 to 38 roles since the start of 2023.

On the roll-out of the Thrive platform for the Unox UK team, Kris Hall, Founder and CEO at The Burnt Chef Project comments:
“Unox has been a long-term supporter of The Burnt Chef
Project – raising thousands of pounds and simultaneously helping us to spread the word about the mental health crisis in the hospitality industry. The roll-out of our Thrive mental well-being app to the company’s expanding UK team demonstrates that Unox doesn’t just talk about supporting those in need but takes clear action to support them too.”
Each member of the Unox UK team has been given their own unique license for the digital platform as well as provided with the information and support to get the most from it going forward. Those joining the company going forward will also be given access to the system as part of the company’s notable list of employee perks. Emphasising the importance of staff wellbeing, Scott Duncan, Managing Director of Unox UK adds:
“Sustainability is a key principle of Unox, both here in the UK and around the world. We don’t just see sustainability as doing good for the planet but doing good by our team too. A period of sustained but rapid expansion in our UK business, has seen us face several challenges associated with growth. Committed to preserving the well-being and mental health of our team, we’ve worked with Kris and the team at The Burnt Chef Project to roll out Thrive across our business. Each member of our team now has full 24/7 access to the extensive library of resources, engaging content, mood tracking, screening and confidential therapy support, right from their mobile phone. Ultimately, we believe that not only does Unox have some of the most innovative equipment on the market, but we are also one of the best places to work – something we’re proud of every day.”
