A leading broker in the fish and chip shop insurance market is warning its customers to err on the side of caution when it comes to inventing new ‘deep fried delicacies.’
Titan, which is one of the UK’s largest brokers in the fish and chip shop insurance sector, is warning its clients to be careful when thinking of new foods to place into the deep fat fryer.
The issue always becomes topical at Christmas when Christmas Pudding and mince pies are battered and then sold alongside the usual fare. But the practice is extending beyond the festive times and friers are becoming more creative than ever. A recent popular choice has been deep fried pizza, which has taken off in a number of outlets.
Another popular choice north of the border is deep fried Mars bar which has become ingrained into the country’s modern culture.
Chief Executive Officer of Titan Business Insurance, Basil Tsapralis, said:
“No-one can blame the friers of the UK for extending their range of foods and adding a degree of creativity to their offering. But they should also ensure that the food stuff they are frying is safe and will not present a problem to customers when eaten.
“Fish and chip shops rely not only on a good product, but also a good word of mouth reputation. Should anything harm that reputation they do risk damaging their business. So, creativity is great, but checks should be carried out as regards food suitability.”
