The Smedes batter we use for our fish & chips is so unbelievably light & crispy as well as very tasty - our customers love it! A great product that is very easy to use - we definitely recommend it!

We have been working with the Smedes batter for the last few months and are delighted with the results. Our fried fish is lighter and crispier and we also have less oil changing to do! This is definitely a product that we will keep using - highly recommended.

Initially I was very cautious changing our batter, as it affects several different menu items. But I am also interested in trying new products if it means an enhanced experience for our customers..... and I was not disappointed with Smedes BatterFlour.

I love this product, it's flavour and taste, the crispyness, the colour. I would highly recommend it. We have tried many different batter flours and mix's over the years and your product is by far the best. 

I hope this helps, and I will and have been recommending your product to friends in the trade.

What I love about the Smedes Batter Mix is the ease of use and consistency of the product. Combine this with a really great taste and you have a winner. It is far more time and cost-effective than creating batter ourselves, just one bag is all we need and any member of my staff can make it.

The taste is superb due to the fact that the batter seals the product immediately, so it does not soak up any oil. And no flour required before adding the batter – it goes straight into the fryer!

To sum it up: consistent, easy-to-use, cost-effective and very, very tasty!

We would like to recommend the great new batter products from Smedes. The batter is very easy to use and our customer see and taste the difference. The batter leaves out fried products with an excellent crispy golden crust and has a reduced fat absorption which means that it not only tastes better but we use less oil making it great value for your money!

This is an outstanding product for fish but also works great on our homemade onions rings and sausages.
