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.

Article Date: 2020-10-21
Mark Ralph originally contacted Hewigo in January 2020 about setting up a British Fish and Chip Shop in Shanghai. Hewigo already had experience doing business in the Far East: In 2015 long standing customer Nickos Zannetou from Zan Fish assisted one of our customers in Hong Kong by helping to serve up Fish and Chips at the Best of British Festival.

Funding for Fish Frying Skills qualification
Article Date: 2020-10-20
Up to 50% funding is available from Seafish towards the cost of the Seafish/NFFF Fish Frying Skills qualification if you apply by 13 November 2020 and the learner completes their assessment by 31 December 2020. This is limited to one learner per business with 20 funded places available on a first come, first served basis.
The learner receives two self-study workbooks which they will study at a time, place and pace that is convenient to them. When the learner has studied the workbooks and completed the exercises in the workbooks, and feels confident with their preparation and frying skills, which they develop whilst working in their shop, they will then contact the NFFF to organise their remote assessment. This is conducted in two parts; the assessment of the preparation and frying skills and a 40 question multiple-choice exam.
