We discussed wide-ranging topics, was interesting to hear how Andrew and his family got into the business, his role at the national federation of fish friers, dealing with public health England and compostable packaging.
About Andrew Crook:
Andrew Crook, President of the National Federation of Fish Friers was recognised for his long-standing contribution to the fish and chip industry last month, receiving the Outstanding Achievement Award at the 2019 National Fish & Chip Awards, organised by Seafish. A 19 year veteran of fish and chips, Andrew has served as NFFF president since 2017.
The Outstanding Achievement Award celebrates an individual who has made a significant contribution to the industry and has played an instrumental part in advancing innovation. This may not necessarily be through long service but more an individual who has made an important impact on fish and chips, either in the short or long term.
Andrew’s own fish and chip shop is called Skippers of Euxton, Chorley, Lancashire. He follows in the footsteps of his late father who was also a previous President of the NFFF and a winner of the Outstanding Achievement Award at The National Fish & Chip Awards in 2010.
