The Exhibition which brings Fish and Chips TO LIFE!

VA Whitley will be hosting Innovations 2019, which is the North West’s major exhibition for the Fish & Chip and Fast Food Trade giving you the opportunity to visit a huge number of first-class exhibitors who will be presenting outstanding product innovations and concepts covering a range of Food Products, Drinks, Packaging Developments, Hygiene Solutions and the latest Catering Equipment all designed for your business.


Expert exhibitors will be on hand to discuss which cooking oils and batter mix products are best suited for your business or even sample some great tasting curries and gravies. Why not try the many superb fish products on offer, including skinless, boneless tightly graded Cod or Haddock from Rammi and Norebo. Spend some time with the cutting crew who will be preparing fish ready to be fried.

Many exhibitors will be cooking their products ready for you to sample, including the excellent quality of 42nd Street Frozen Foods, featuring our ‘Classic Sausage’, the number one selling catering sausage, quality Beefburgers and a great range of whole muscle chicken products for you to taste. You can enjoy tasting pies and puddings from Hollands, Pukka and Wrights.

If it is packaging you are after, then look out for our great ranges of ‘Real Food’ and ‘Hook and Fish’ branded packaging, the environmentally friendly range of Bio Boxes, an excellent range of corrugated boxes including the excellent two compartment boxes as well as a broad range of carriers - all specifically designed for the Fish and Chip Trade.
