UK catering equipment and catering disposables supplier Alliance Online is hoping for a spike in orders from chip shops this week after rolling out a series of special promotions.
The company is bidding to make the most of National Chip Week, which runs until February 23, and sees fish and chip shops and restaurants across the country getting involved in various events and activities.
Alliance Online, which has more than 60 different products in its chip shop range, says it is giving the industry a helping hand by promoting the event and unveiling special offers on its chip shop range.
Mike Hardman, marketing manager of Alliance Online, said Chip Week was a fun way for chippies to help boost sales and support the industry.
He continued: “We’re doing our bit for chip week at Alliance Online by running a promotion on the homepage of our website and emailing all of our customers with a special ‘chip week’ product range. We’ve got chip cones, scoops, forks, electric fryers, sauce sachets and much more, all at fantastic prices.”
Over 250 million portions of chips are sold every year in the UK, accounting for some 1.6 million tonnes of potatoes.
