FISH AND CHIPS:
Founded by Fish
Friers for Fish
Friers in 1913
MEET THE NEEDS
OF ALL FRIERS
The National Federation of Fish Friers (NFFF) is the official body that represents the fish and chip industry, protects the interests of fish friers and their businesses, and promotes the fish and chip brand.
Our organisation is run by fish friers, for fish friers - and to our members, we're the 5th emergency service!
Established in 1913 by individual fish and chip shop owners who united and, working together as a team, they ensured their voices were heard, by suppliers, by government and by the regulators.
Today, the NFFF continues to be the voice of the fish frier, dealing with government departments and collaborating with other organisations to help shape the legislation that directly affects fish and chip businesses, and as a communication hub, liaising with local, national and international media organisations, addressing and deflecting adverse issues and promoting the positive – protecting the fish and chip brand.

Does your small business need a card machine?
Article Date: 2019-05-23
If you have recently launched your own business, you may think purchasing a card terminal is a low priority expense. However, in today's modern world it is crucial you are able to offer customers a card payment option. Recent report revealed that card payments are now more popular than cash transactions, with over 13.2bn card payments taking place in 2018 alone. This means the use of card payments has increased by 14% since 2016 and this figure is only set to rise. Below we look at some of the ways a card machine can benefit a small business…
Doesn't limit your customers
Businesses of any size can benefit from a card terminal; for example, if you run a small market stall you may think card payments are unnecessary and ask customers to pay in cash. This limits a customer to spend only what cash they have with them, but if you offer non-cash payments, they will be able to spend more money at your stall. In fact, there are a number of markets in the UK now that only accept card payments!
For a new business, establishing yourself as a reputable and trustworthy business can be difficult. Having a card machine not only looks professional but shows you are taking your business seriously, something that will impress potential customers.
The next step
If you have decided purchasing a card machine is the right choice for your small business, there are some important things you need to ask yourself…
1. Which card machine is right for my business?
From contactless to countertop terminals there are multiple kinds of card machine available. To help you make this choice, we break down which machines are better for different businesses. For more click here.
2. Have I got a merchant account?
A merchant account is a protection-based account where customer payments sit until the transaction has been authorised. Merchant accounts are necessary for payments to be completed and can be supplied by your PSP (payment service provider).
3. Do I need the card machine long-term?
If you are a brand-new business and are unsure if you need a card payment machine long-term, consider hiring a machine for your next event or sales opportunity and see how it benefits your business.
