Grilled, battered, crumbed—tucking into a delicious serve of fish ’n’ chips is an iconic Australian experience. But who will be crowned as having Australia’s best?
In its third year, kicking off this Easter, the FRDC is excited to be opening votes and hopping nationwide on its quest to uncover Australia’s best fish and chips for 2019.
The awards are a fantastic opportunity to support local businesses as well as educating consumers on the sustainability of the Australian seafood industry and the vast range of seafood options on offer.
Darwin’s Frying Nemo, took both the Judges and People’s Choice awards. Eddie and Julie Willoughby-Smith say that it has been “Absolutely fantastic to celebrate and share the 2018 award wins with our staff and customers – it all contributes to what makes Frying Nemo a great place to enjoy.
“Such recognition is extremely positive and reaffirms our commitment to providing quality produce and delicious Fish and Chips to all.”
The awards will again run across two categories—Judged and People’s Choice. In 2019 however, shops will need to nominate themselves to be judged through an online application process.
The Fish and Chips Awards have also been brought forward to align with the Seafood Industry Awards, which run in conjunction with the biennial Seafood Directions Conference held in Melbourne, where the national winners will be awarded.
Voting will begin across all states and territories on Friday 19 April 2019 and will finish on Friday 31 May 2019.
