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."
