Awards and Accreditations
Hillycroft Fisheries are always striving to produce the best quality fish and chips.
MSC Sustainable Fish Certification
Following a successful audit, Hillycroft Fisheries have earned the coveted sustainable fish certificate from the Marine Stewardship Council (MSC). By displaying the MSC ecolabel along with our MSC certification number (MSC-C-53712), we are demonstrating our support for the health and ecology of the world’s oceans through sustainable fishing. We have full traceability of all the haddock we serve, details of which are displayed on a provenance poster in the shop every day.
We are proud that Hillycroft Fisheries is the first fish and chip shop in Morley to be MSC certified.

National Food Hygiene Rating
Hillycroft Fisheries holds 5 out of 5 stars in the Food Hygiene Rating scheme run by Leeds City Council. This is the highest rating possible.
During an inspection, an Environmental Health Officer appointed by the council visits food outlets to inspect the premises and focuses on the following:
- How food is handled, prepared and cooked
- The overall structure of the premises and the catering equipment, to ensure it is in good repair and working order
- Look at all our records to ensure we keep note of temperatures and cleaning rotas.
