Last week The Chip Group presented Michael Huang of Oppies Takeaways in Rotorua with a special award to acknowledge his outstanding contribution to the chip industry.

Chairperson Glenda Gourley and Kate Underwood, Training and Education Manager from The Chip Group visited Michael in Rotorua to present him with this prestigious award. The award is to celebrate that Michael has trained and inspired hundreds of operators throughout NZ to follow his example and adopt the Industry Standards for best practice frying.

“Michael gives his time enthusiastically”, says Kate. “He is a true inspiration to the industry.” Through his involvement with The Chip Group he has been able to inspire operators like himself to remove a huge amount of fat from the NZ food supply.

In Matamata alone he was able to help motivate 10 operators to remove a staggering 1711kg of fat from the Matamata food supply – find out more here. This proves categorically that if a lot of individual operators make small changes to their frying techniques then cumulative affect can have a big impact on the food supply.

This is the first time The Chip Group has made any award such as this, and is reflective of his unique contribution to better the industry.

On behalf of The Chip Group we would like to congratulate Michael and his family and staff who allow Michael to get away and share his time helping others better their businesses.
