The Bidfood People’s Choice Award provides an opportunity to acknowledge great chips, engage your customers and gather support from your local community.

Put your restaurants/café/shop on the map!

The 2019 Best Chip Shop Competition has always gained keen media coverage and a strong public following. This competition is a chance to put your shop on the map, to upskill (via Chip Group Training), to receive feedback from the experts, and to literally put your chips forward to test against the rest. We want more chip shops to be acknowledged for their great work.

A Chance to get your chips tested – for FREE! 

Ever wondered how much fat is in the chips you cook? Entering this year’s Judges’ Supreme Award gives you the opportunity to find out the official fat content of your chips.

Not only will each valid entry have their chips fat-analysed (in the laboratory), any chips with less than 9% fat will automatically receive a Highly Commended Award, alongside a spot on our ‘Find a Great Chip Shop Near You’ map.
