STAFF at a Flet­ton fish and chip shop are cel­e­brat­ing af­ter be­ing handed a pres­ti­gious award – for the qual­ity of their fry­ing oil.

Flet­ton Fish and Chips, in High Street, Flet­ton is the first fish and chip shop in Cam­bridgeshire to have been awarded the Fry­max Gold Stan­dard Award for Ex­cel­lence in Oil Man­age­ment.

The award was pre­sented by Fry­max, a lead­ing all-vegetable brand of fry­ing oil for the fish and chip trade, to fry­ers who demon­strate that they are tak­ing care to keep their cook­ing oil in top con­di­tion to main­tain the qual­ity taste of the food.

The award is based on 18 cri­te­ria, the most im­por­tant be­ing an ob­jec­tive sci­en­tific mea­sure­ment of the clean­li­ness of the oil. The shops must also demon­strate that they dis­pose of their used oil in an en­vi­ron­men­tally friendly way.

Shop man­ager Yas­sar Mo­hammed said: “We are de­lighted to have been awarded the Gold Stan­dard.

“We strive for ex­cel­lence in ev­ery part of our busi­ness.

“The oil af­fects the qual­ity of ev­ery item we cook in the shop so it’s very im­por­tant to have good, clean oil to en­hance the qual­ity of the food we serve to our cus­tomers.”

Cyril Solomons, a spokesman for Fry­max, added: “The shop is very se­lec­tive with its ma­jor in­gre­di­ents.

“The fish is of the high­est qual­ity and sourced from well man­aged, sus­tain­able fish­ing grounds.

“The pota­toes are pur­chased from a lead­ing spe­cial­ist sup­plier.

“All meals are cooked to or­der to en­sure that cus­tomers re­ceive a fresh, hot and tasty meal.”

Flet­ton Fish and Chips was also re­cently awarded a Five Star Rat­ing Health and Hy­giene Award by Peter­bor­ough City Coun­cil.
