A POPULAR fish and chip shop in Llandudno Junction has been received praise for its efforts helping the community and environment.

Enochs Fish & Chips, at 146 Conway Road, supports two football teams in the area and also donates to charities including the Fisherman’s Mission and the RNLI.

Founded by fish merchant Arthur Enoch Hughes in 1963, the award-winning business was the first fish and chip shop in Wales to gain MSC accreditation, and has also won a silver Investors in People Award.

Consistently rated among the best chippys in the Conwy coastal area, the shop sources potatoes from long-standing Llanrwst merchants Gwyn Morris and Son, and uses sustainable packaging and has cut out the use of palm oil.

Janet Finch-Saunders, MS for Aberconwy, spoke of her delight at the efforts made by owner Danny White-Meir to produce food with the community and environment at heart.

“Sustainability is at the heart of everything Enochs do, and not just when it comes to sourcing food responsibly,” said Mrs Finch-Saunders.

“Whether it’s when they are recycling used oil or using biodegradable packaging, they always work with the environment in mind.

“When considering that the nutritious meals produced at Enochs are made using only a few ingredients, many of which are sourced locally, it is clear that we can all have confidence that their fish and chips, from potato to packaging, has great green credentials.”
