Stuart cooking fish and chips

Keeping the fish and chips in business

As an independent family company, Quayside takes its environmental responsibilities seriously. We want our customers to be able to tuck into our delicious fish forever so we only use fish from trawlers that are part of the Responsible Fishing Scheme. That means the species caught are neither threatened nor endangered, Quayside is also an audited member of the Marine Stewardship Council.
To reduce our carbon footprint, Quayside invested in high-efficiency frying equipment, saving up to 30 per cent in energy costs. And we haven’t forgotten the small things – LED light bulbs, biodegradable cleaning products and packaging, recycled paper, the Plastic Bag Free Whitby initiative – because added together they make a big difference

Learn about our fish

At our Fusco Foundation, classes of up to 50 children can learn all about our fish and potatoes, from the raw product to the fried one, about sustainability and the food chain, Whitby and the local community. An ideal school trip for children up to the age of 11, all programmes end with a champion fish and chip treat.
