A Devon van has been named one of the top five mobile fish and chip shops in the country and will now go head to head to be crowned number one.

The business has been shortlisted as a UK Top 5 finalist in the Best Mobile Fish and Chip Operator Award , one of 14 categories in the 2019 National Fish & Chip Awards.

Following initial judging, five operators – Dodson's Fresh Catch in West Yorkshire; The English Indian in Staffordshire; The Fish Bar in Cheshire; The Little Fishy in Tyne and Wear; and The Whiddon Wagon in Devon – have been shortlisted for the contribution mobile businesses make in providing the nation’s favourite dish.

The finalist businesses have been judged against a wide range of criteria, including sustainable sourcing policies, staff training, marketing and of course, the quality of product served to its customers.

Over the coming weeks the businesses will face further mystery dining inspections, before the overall UK winner is announced at the prestigious annual awards ceremony to be held in London on 24 January 2019.

The Whiddon Wagon follows a weekly route which takes in Landkey, Swimbridge, Bratton Fleming, Chulmleigh, Brayford, Umberleigh, Winkleigh, Hartland, Lynton, Shebbear, Buckland and Parkham as well as attending privte and special events

Marcus Coleman, Chief Executive at Seafish, said: “We’re seeing a new generation of mobile fish and chip units make their mark around the country with innovative operators jumping on opportunities, such as providing fish and chips to the wedding market and at music festivals.

“The idea of mobile catering is far from new, but improved equipment and facilities, have brought a new lease of life to the sector – something the fish and chip industry is capitalising on.

“Running a successful mobile catering business is no easy feat, and requires a great deal of commitment and passion. Our shortlisted finalists hit the mark perfectly with all five showcasing the high levels of innovation that can be found within the mobile catering sector while still retaining the traditions of our quintessentially British meal, fish and chips.”
