Why do we need Industry Standards?
These standards cover the key points needed to produce high quality fried chips.
Why do we have Standards?
New Zealanders eat a huge amount of chips each year. We believe making chips lower in fat (total and saturated) and salt could have a big impact on people’s health. Research shows that consumers prefer the taste of chips when they are cooked according to the Industry Standards.
Who are the Standards for?
These Industry Standards are practical recommendations for anyone deep frying chips. It is our intention that everyone involved in the frying of chips follows these practices.
