The Fish and Chip Awards has announced the top 40 finalists for the Fish & Chip Takeaway of the Year 2023.

The official website explained: “Judging criteria included having to demonstrate high levels of knowledge of the Fish & Chip industry including customer service, and environmental and sustainably good practices.”
