A look back at National Fish & Chip Day 2022

The batter flour has settled and the biggest day in the Fish & Chip calendar has come and gone but how did Friday the 27th of May go – well National Fish and Chip Day in its seventh year was, fair to say, batter than ever!


With TV, radio and newspapers featuring stores and events as well as thousands of fish and chip shops and other fast-food outlets and restaurants taking part in the festivities national fish and chip day brought the nations favourite dish even more to the fore for a special day in the calendar of fish and chip shops, their associates, and their customers.


Social media, using the hashtag ‘#nationalfishandchipday’, was inundated with amazing events and mouth-watering pictures and much deserved and much needed support was found for the fish & chip shops, pub chains, restaurants, retailers, fishermen and farmers who provide the sustainable and natural ingredients needed to create the nation’s favourite meal.

As we take a look back at National Fish & Chip Day 2022 we ask you to not stop using the hashtag ‘#nationalfishandchipday’ and keep the support going all year round – plus keep an eye out for the 2023 date soon to be announced.


National Fish & Chip Day Roadshow in Edinburgh…

As sponsors of National Fish & Chip Day we were delighted to support the Roadshow in our area, right in the heart of Edinburgh’s University District. Organisers NEODA worked with The Bay’s Chef Director Calum Richardson to showcase Fish & Chips to hundreds of hungry Students and the event was a huge success.

We were pleased to support the day further by providing free packaging, frying oil and salt & vinegar… plus a team of 4 Henry Colbeck Colleagues too! A huge thanks go to our team – Hugh O’Brien (Operations Director), Sarah Sievewright (Sales Manager), Joe Welsh (Transport Supervisor) & Paula Brannigan (Telesales Supervisor).



The National Fish and Chip Day event is championed by NEODA, The National Edible Oil Distributors Association who members include edible oil and fats refiners, processors, distributors, waste oil collectors (who also sell fresh oil). It also covers manufacturers and suppliers of non-oil products (including batter mix, sausages, packaging, potato preservatives) and other industry bodies in the UK.

NEODA’s key objective is to promote the interests of its members and raise standards across the entire edible oil packing and distributive trade. Whatever your involvement within the edible oil trade, whether a refiner, a packer or a distributor, NEODA provides an open forum for discussion for everyone working to protect and promote the production and sale of high-quality edible oils and fats sold within the UK.
