How it all began
After a trip to Amsterdam, three successful fish and chip shop owners, George, Harry and Chris, decided to bring traditional Dutch style chips (or Friet & Mayo as they are known in Holland) back to the UK. They knew these chips would be a winner in the UK with customers, as the chips are totally different to any chips currently available as fast food. There are two things that differentiate Dutch style chips from your average fish and chip shop chips; first the chips are cooked to crispy outer perfection with a fluffy soft inside and secondly they are smothered with specialist Dutch sauces!
The trio soon realised that part of the 'magic recipe' was using a high Oleic sunflower oil and keeping this oil as clear and pure as possible. High oleic oil is high in unsaturated fat, low in saturated fat, and has no trans fat. It actually lowers LDL cholesterol (known to cause cardiac diseases) making it a healthier choice.
Chris, Harry and George realised this concept was suitable for vegetarians, vegans, celiacs and gluten free diets. They spent months looking for a shop before finally finding their current premises next to the Hippodrome in Bristol as the perfect location. Now all they had to do was come up with a name........
