Battering the opposition!
It was judged across a wide variety of criteria including the policies they have in place regarding the responsible sourcing of raw ingredients, the preparation of products, how levels of customer satisfaction are recorded and responded to, and marketing and promotional activity.
The business also received mystery judging visits from an awards auditor.
Mr Warren collected the award during a ceremony at the Lancaster London Hotel in London.
He said: “After being shortlisted as a finalist in this award category last year, we’re extremely proud to be named the winners for 2016.
“We’ve worked so hard over the years and it’s fantastic to be recognised for our commitment and passion.
“We’re out on the roads day and night serving the local communities, villages and care homes, but to know you have made someone’s day by giving them fish and chips makes it all worthwhile. I hope we’ll be serving up fish and chips for years to come.”
Mick Bacon, manager of the Responsible Fishing Scheme, which sponsors the award, said: “StarChip Enterprise shone throughout the whole judging process, their passion and determination to succeed is to be admired.”
In all there were 14 different awards recognising everything from traditional takeaways to mobile operators to excellence in training and responsible sourcing.
