APRIL 2022 CONTENTS

Fish and chips, a great value meal This month has seen a raft of further challenges hit the industry as VAT went back up to 20%, National Insurance increased, energy prices were ramped up and the Budget, well there was very little help in there for small businesses. But we have to remain positive, even though times are tough, and make the most of the opportunities that we have ahead of us. National Fish & Chip Day on 27th May is a fantastic day to shine a spotlight on our national dish so let’s stop banging the drum about how expensive it’s going to get and change the narrative to what a great value meal it still represents. Make changes, put up your prices if you need to but also think about adding a smaller portion, pushing your high profit menu items or adding something new.
