Take a break from the federal election campaign and cast your vote for the Bundaberg Region's best fish and chips. Voting opened today in a national poll to find Australia's best.
Easter is one of the busiest times for both fish and chip shops and the Australian seafood industry. Research shows Australian households spend 40 per cent more on fresh fish and seafood in the Easter month than they usually do.
So while you are enjoying your seafood today, make sure you support your favourite chippers and cast your vote.
Fish ’n’ chips is a cultural icon in many parts of the world, including Australia. Celebrity chef Luke Mangan says that while he was growing up in Melbourne, “Friday fish (flake) and chips was part of life”. Now many years later fish and chips still remains a part of this chef’s life and regularly features on his menus; see more.
The awards are now in their third year and they are a fantastic opportunity to support local businesses as well as educating consumers on the sustainability of the Australian seafood industry and the vast range of seafood options on offer.
Shops will be judged by the public for the people’s choice awards and can also nominate themselves to receive a visit from a secret critic as part of the judged competition.
Taste will weigh in the most in the voting criteria, but the level of service, choice, information provided and the presentation will also count.
Voting closes on Friday, 31 May 2019.
