Nationwide Chip Ban

The Late One

Oct 24, 2004
It is not just at SUFC where you will not be able to buy chips soon...

The new E.C Directive (Balanced Nutritional Act January 2010) Applicable to Outside Catering - the purpose being to ensure Customers have a more balanced diet - and not just chips alone when attending events such as these.

Only applies to Mobile Caterers - so doesn't apply to your Local Fish and Chip shop or Mc Donald's etc.

£1000 minimum fine for Non Compliant Sellers and Buyers! - so watch over your shoulder if you try to buy Chips alone.

There is the likelihood this will drive the chips business "underground" and onto the black market.

Thes are sad days for chip lovers

Another example of the E.C. interfering in our everday lives.

Basically you can no longer buy chips on their own from mobile caterers without breaking this law, no mention on onions....yet !!
