Ayrshire chippy wins MCS sponsored award for it's innovative menus and ideas

The Chip Box, based in Stewarton, has been rewarded with a top industry accolade for serving  up the perfect catch to it's customers and offering a wide choice of sustainable fish on it's menu. 

Scott McMaster and Ronnie McCulloch scooped the  MCS sponsored 'The Good Catch' prize at the National Fish and Chip  Awards. 

'The Good Catch' Award  recognises initiative and commitment in serving  sustainable seafood to the public. With fish and chip shops often seen as the grass roots of seafood consumption, it's an important award. 

MCS Fisheries Officer, David Parker, says:  "The Chip Box gives free tasters to queues on busy nights of a wide variety of sustainable fish. They hand out our Pocket Good Fish Guides and put up posters on the issues of sustainable  fishing - well done them! Scott and Ronnie have created an excellent sourcing policy with a menu offering many different species from certified fisheries."
