Lincoln Chippy Wins Sustainable Certification

15 August 2013

UK - A Lincoln fish and chip shop has become the first in the county to be awarded Marine Stewardship Council certification.

This means that the haddock on Burton Road’s menu can be traced back to sustainable, well-managed fisheries which are helping ensure a sustainable future for our oceans.

Owner, Des Anastasiou explained: “Our oceans have provided us with a living, it's time to give something back and that's care. By getting MSC certified we’re proving that we care for the oceans."

Ruth Westcott, Foodservice Manager for the MSC welcomed the certification: "Every MSC certified haddock that Burton Road serves will help to encourage fisheries to improve their sustainability.

"Less than twenty fish and chip shops in the UK have achieved MSC certification so they are true pioneers. That’s great news for fish and chips fans in Lincoln, and throughout the county. I hope that their success will help to inspire others to follow their lead.”
