Churchills

AN ETHICAL FISH AND CHIP SHOP

 

ONLY USE SUSTAINABLE FISHING SOURCES

The health of the oceans and future fish stocks is very important to us as a company. We can only thrive as a business if the seas and oceans and fish within them continue to thrive. We believe in only sourcing fish from sustainable fishing sources. This is why we purchase our cod, haddock and plaice from sustainable Icelandic sources, where four trawlers catch to our specific requirements. In Iceland it is illegal to discard any by-catch and a strict quota system is run by scientists to ensure the continued health of fish stocks for generations to come.


SUPPLIERS & CHUMS: WE KNOW THE ORIGIN OF OUR RAW INGREDIENTS

The strength of our business is founded on lasting relationships and integrity. We know all of our suppliers, the exact origination of our raw ingredients and the detail of the supply chain to our door.  We have four fishing vessels which catch for us in the waters of Iceland, we know the Captains and crews of the vessels personally and regularly visit them to maintain our close working relationship.  This close relationship and those that we have with our local potato and chicken farmers are the foundation of our business as they allow us to consistently provide our customers with only the very best. We don’t tolerate surprises when it comes to our food! 


ONLY THE HIGHEST QUALITY

Our passion for quality extends throughout our menu, from only using chickens which fully comply with the independently assessed Red Tractor Farm Assurance criteria to produce our succulent rotisserie chicken; and our Churchill's Special Recipe Fried Chicken that is coated in our family recipe of herbs and spices, to using potatoes from trusted farmers which produce Churchill’s unique and tasty thick cut chips.

 

FRESH IS BEST

All of our food is prepared freshly in store every day. We cut all of our fish and chicken by hand in store everyday to make sure it is as fresh and delicious as possible. We hand make all of our fish cakes in store everyday and chip and peel our potatoes fresh too.

 

BE ENVIRONMENTALLY FRIENDLY

We care about the environment we live in therefore want to make sure that as a company we are finding new, innovative ways to reduce our impact on the world we live in. All of our packaging is made of recycled material and or biodegradable, and we are committed recyclers. 

We take our impact on the environment very seriously and strive to reduce our carbon usage by ensuring that all waste oil is collected, recycled and converted into biodiesel. By recycling our waste oil products into bio diesel we help to off-set not only our own carbon output but that of our customers’ travel to our stores by helping to offset their carbon imprint. 

 

TRUST, HONESTY AND INTEGRITY

We don’t believe in making a fast buck, or operating just inside the law. We believe in following ethical business practice and giving back to the countries and communities in which we operate by meeting our full tax and financial business obligations.
