Here at Zan Fish, we love our planet as much as we love fish and chips, which is why we make a conscious effort to use sustainable fish in the UK and we’re gradually becoming more green as we make changes throughout our shops to help protect the planet.
Why we're going green and how
We recognise the urgent need to address climate change and reduce our ecological footprint - for us, embracing going green is responsible and fair. From April of this year, we’ve been trialling environmental packaging in the Village shop only, which has lowered our plastic-use substantially. Talking about packaging, our serving boxes and even our biodegradable cups for drinks and sauces, are all recyclable. This ensures that our products are causing as little impact to the environment as possible, and allows our customers to join in on making an effort to become more sustainable.
Our produce is also sustainably-sourced to ensure excellent quality is always delivered to our customers. There’s a reason why our sustainable fish in the UK is some of the freshest and best tasting in Derby. Through buying in bulk, having our own warehouse of produce, only using high efficiency frying ranges, and accounting for all of our waste oil, we’re making small changes that have a big impact.
Why we need to act fast
Sea levels are rising, oceans are filled with plastic, and the landfills are overflowing with waste - doesn’t sound good does it? Which is why we need to make a change, and quickly.
With more than a third of Brits tucking into fish and chips once a week or more, and 65% eating them at least once a month, it’s essential that we provide sustainable fish in the UK and eco-friendly packaging, so those who want to enjoy this iconic meal can do so without it adding to the climate crisis.
