Country’s Top Chip Shop Named

Country’s Top Chip Shop Named

Oceanz in Silverdale, Auckland has been named New Zealand’s top chip shop after taking out the number one spot in this year’s That’s Life! Best Chip Shop Competition.

Chip Group Chairperson, Glenda Gourley, said this is the first time Oceanz - Silverdale has been crowned as the country’s top chippie.

The six regional winners are as follows:

Northland to North Shore Region Oceanz – Silverdale – regional winner and grand national winner

Please note, regional finalists listed below.

Judges unanimously agreed that certificates gained through completing the Chip Online Training modules which teach owners and their staff about the New Zealand Industry Standards for Deep Fried Chips in Independent Fast Food Outlets’, are increasingly on display in stores.

Heart Foundation nutritionist, Judith Morley-John, said this year, judges were on the lookout for certificates displayed in stores which showed that at least one employee has completed online training for the industry standards.

“In some regions there were over 70% of the shops that had had at least one employee complete the Chip Group Online Training. This shows that chip shop operators are being proactive in adopting the industry standards and are working towards making better chips for their customers.”

Other areas to come under scrutiny were: chip freshness and colour, shop cleanliness and customer service.

“A chip sample from each shop was sent away for fat analysis, and only those containing a fat level of less than 11 percent made the grade,” Judith said.

As in previous years, a combination of public text voting, mystery judging and chip fat analysis determined the regional finalists from each of the six regions across New Zealand. The six regional winners and Grand National winner were then chosen by a panel of judges.

The ‘That’s Life! Best Chip Shop Competition 2009’ is the country’s only national chip shop competition and this year is supported by: That’s Life! magazine, ‘Goodman Fielder’, ‘Bakels’, Food2Go Magazine, McCain Foods (NZ) Ltd, ‘Mr Chips’, ‘Potatoes New Zealand’, ‘Alfa One’, ‘Eurotec’ and the ‘Heart Foundation’.
