National Fish and Chip Day is about giving fish and chips the recognition it deserves and helping to secure its position as the UK's number one takeaway.
The event, which will take place on the first Friday in June every year, already has the backing of key players in the industry.

The national event is being championed by trade organisation, The National Edible Oil Distributors' Association, who represent packers and distributors of oils and fats in the UK, in a move designed to showcase all the stars who work hard to bring Brits their favourite traditional takeaway, from the fisherman hauling in their fresh catch in all weathers, to the fryers serving their local communities for generations.

NEODA President, Gary Lewis, comments "We want to bring the whole industry together to celebrate and showcase the great British institution that is fish and chips.

"We've been eating it for generations. It is part of our tradition and our national identity, and the local chippy is a part of every local community.

"To help build support in anticipation for the event, we are urging people to start tweeting with the hashtag #FishandChipDay."

So why not visit King Louis's this Friday!
