FISH and chip lovers from around the country made Peterborough the ‘plaice’ to be when over 2,000 visitors attended the popular FRY I.T. exhibition.
Traders and exhibitors from around Peterborough, East Anglia and as far away as Devon and Wales attended the biennial event that puts fast food well and truly in the spotlight.
This is the second time the exhibition – organised by city-based family owned company Friars Pride – has been held at Exec Peterborough, marking a partnership of the two high profile local businesses.
The trade only show allows Friar Pride, as leading suppliers to over 4,500 chippies and fast food outlets around the country, to promote the new trade innovations within the industry.
Exec Peterborough managing director Keith Dalton said: “The success and interest of this exhibition never ceases to amaze us. We are delighted to be involved with this exhibition, particularly as we are able to support another local business, Friars Pride.”
As a family business, Friars Pride’s FRY I.T. is organised with families in mind – and there was plenty to keep younger visitors entertained, while all visitors also had the chance to enter competitions and to see just what goes into making award-winning fish and chips.
Friars Pride sales and marketing executive Caye Wan said: “It was another great event and we are thrilled that after hosting FRY I.T. elsewhere in the UK that we have found such a versatile convenient venue at which to host what is a highlight in our calendar.”
Visitors had the chance to chip in on demonstrations and seminars at the Friar’s Pride FRY I.T event at Exec Peterborough.
