Entries are now open for the 2017 Best Chip Shop Competition Entries – Enter Now! Please encourage your favourite chip shop to enter online at www.thechipgroup.co.nz/enter.

The Chip Group is pleased to welcome Bidfood (formerly Bidvest) as naming rights sponsor of the Bidfood People’s Choice Best Chips Award. More about this in the next update.
