Let’s celebrate Seafood Week!

October 10, 2018

Seafood Week; lets dive right in to the annual celebration of all things fishy during #seafoodweek – when the UK industry promotes the more than 100 different varieties of fish and shellfish available on our shores.

It naturally starts on a #fishfriday – the #fish lover’s favourite day. We ‘pesce’ folk at Hilton Smythe (a member of the Federation of Fish Friers) prefer ours with a serving of chips.

According to our seafood sources there are 10,500 specialist fish and chip shops in the UK and we Britons tuck in to 167 million portions of fish and chips a year. The annual fish and chip spend is about  £1.2 billion.

No need to ‘mullet over’, if you fancy some something tasty then check out Seafood Week! #seafoodweek

Interested in buying a Fish & Chip Shop?

Fish and chips has long been the traditional British takeaway, and the food has been served up together since the 1800s. Fish and chip shops make the perfect family business, and many fish and chip chain restaurants started as a humble family-run company. Many premises come with accommodation included, which the business owner and family can live in or which can be rented out to provide extra income. The local chippy is an important part of any community, but it’s not just battered cod or haddock and deep fried chips on the menu anymore. Many modern fish and chip shops now serve up a range of dishes including pies, chicken, fish cakes, scampi and burgers. For many people it’s the added extras that make all the difference – gravy, curry sauce or mushy peas.
