To help maintain fish and chips as the undisputed national dish of Great Britain the NFFF works closely with number of organisation and trade partners. Without the help of this organisation fish and chips would not stand on the same footing as it does today.
The industry partners are;
The AHDB is a statutory levy board, funded by farmers, growers and others in the supply chain and managed as an independent organisation (independent of both commercial industry and of Government).
Coeliac UK is the leading charity working for people with coeliac disease and dermatitis herpetiformis (DH). We are widely recognised as the expert body on the gluten-free diet and want to see more gluten-free choices on menus so people with coeliac disease can eat out with confidence.
Fasfa is the Frozen at Sea Fillets Association, representing trawler owners and distributors of FAS filleted fish from Norway, Iceland, Faroe Islands, Spain, Russia and the UK. Fasfa works to improve the understanding of frozen at sea fish with consumers and trade by promoting environmental, quality and healthy eating messages.
The Fishermen’s Mission
The Fishermen’s Mission is the national charity that delivers emergency response and welfare help to active and retired fishermen and their families. We use money generated through fundraising to assist Fishing Families around the UK. We’re proud and grateful of the support NFFF Members give to our charity by running events, having charity items on your menus, having our ‘Albert Collection box’ on your counter and participating in National Fish and Chip Day to raise money to assist in our work.
Marine Stewardship Council
MSC works to recognise and reward sustainable fishing practices. Any fish bearing the MSC ecolabel can be traced back to an independently certified sustainable fishery. By getting MSC certified and offering your customers seafood certified sustainable fish with our distinctive blue ecolabel, you will be helping to transform the global seafood market to a sustainable basis.
The National Edible Oil Distributors’ Association (NEODA) was established in 1947. Its members include edible oil and fats refiners, processors, distributors, waste oil collectors (who also sell fresh oil) and cold pressed producers. It also covers manufacturers and suppliers of non-oil products (including batter mix, sausages, packaging, potato preservatives) and other industry bodies. NEODA is responsible for bringing National Fish & Chip Day to the public and has done since 2015. National Fish & Chip Day takes place on the first Friday in June every year.
Seafish is a Non-Departmental Public Body (NDPB) set up by the Fisheries Act 1981 to improve efficiency and raise standards across the seafood industry. We are funded by a levy on the first sale of seafood products in the UK, including imported seafood. At Seafish, our mission is to support a profitable, sustainable and socially responsible future for the seafood industry. Our remit includes everything - and everyone - from fishermen and processors through to importers, retailers and food service providers. As an organisation, we also take a great interest in the consumer: the people who buy and eat seafood. Maintaining a well-regulated seafood industry which delivers high-quality, safe, sustainable seafood to UK consumers is one of our highest priorities. We therefore listen to, and cooperate with, a broad range of voices in the industry. By balancing our priorities and maintaining a high degree of transparency in our operations, we endeavour to meet the needs of everyone that we represent.
