Love Fish and Chips - Love Whiteheads

We Care About Our Food

We are passionate about our environmental responsibilities and the quality and taste of the food we serve, where we source from and how it is cooked. Here is an insight into our approach to ingredient procurement and food preparation.

Whiteheads fish and chips - we care about our fish

Our Fish

Because we strive to serve our customers with the best taste in fish and chips every time, the securing of consistent quality, sustainably-sourced wild seafish is vital to us. All the MSC cod and haddock we serve is from our supplier XpressFish and is fully traceable from Marine Stewardship Council certified fisheries; caught by ThorFish, the Icelandic company whom we visit from time to time.

Whiteheads fish and chips - we care about our potatoes

Our Potatoes

Just as with our fish, we take great care over the supply of our potatoes and have developed a close working partnership with a local East Yorkshire potato grower with whom we have worked for a number of years. From field to Whitehead’s Fish and Chips is just a 10 minute drive; probably the lowest food miles travelled by any British chip shop spuds. Ask our staff about the variety of potatoes we use.

Whiteheads fish and chips - we care about how we cook your meal

How we Cook

Many of our customers dine with us because they want to avoid allergy-causing foods, saturated fats or because they are vegetarian. We only cook using 100% non-gm rapeseed oil meaning all our non-meat products are vegetarian friendly. Fish is cooked separately from our chips and our batter is milk-free in both our gluten-free and standard batters. We are confident we are serving foods that all our customers can enjoy, whilst observing their dietary needs.

Whiteheads fish and chips - we care about our gluten free options

Gluten Free

For many people, intollerance to certain foods affects their health and wellbeing. In the case of coeliac disease, a gluten-free diet is essential.

Our takeaway and restaurant menus include a wide choice of gluten-free meals (marked GF). Customers following a gluten-free diet should make staff aware as we cook GF foods separately 7 days a week, to ensure there are no traces of gluten; no matter how miniscule.

Environmental Responsibility

Whitehead’s take positive steps to minimise environmental impact:-

  • Recycling of packaging and cooking oils is sound economics and reduces waste.
  • Returnable containers for oils for optimum storage and efficient handling.
  • Litter bins provided for all takeaway boxes; we regularly check for any stray litter.
  • Sustainable Fishing methods.
  • Low food miles for potato supplies.
