KEBAB ALLIANCE

Leaders from across the industry are joining forces to speak up for this Great British success story.

I work hard to give a voice to the amazing kebab sector, speaking up for kebab restaurants and takeaways on a range of issues, from training and employment to supply chain and regulations for small business. I hope to be a champion for the benefits of kebabs – to individual consumers, to local communities and to the wider British economy.

The local kebab restaurant is a feature of nearly every community in our country. An enduring symbol of entrepreneurship and British diversity, these outlets cater for all tastes.Through investment, employment and, most of all, delicious food, the kebab restaurant is a cornerstone of the Great British High Street.It is no surprise that over 36% of the UK public have eaten a kebab in the last month. Kebab proprietors bring us authentic flavours from around the world, paired with Great British produce for healthy, quality meals.Whether it’s a kebab shop, restaurant, supplier or anyone involved in the industry, their success is a barometer of strength on the High Street. Their voice is the Kebab Alliance.

Leaders from across the industry are joining forces to speak up for this Great British success story. The Kebab Alliance Charter sets out the key areas where the industry must make its voice heard:

Not all takeaway foods are created equal! Kebabs are grilled, not fried, which makes them a less fatty alternative than many other dishes. Quality kebabs will also use lean, grilled meats.

Whilst the doner kebab we know and love today dates from 1970s Berlin, kebabs have been a treat for millions since the 1600s. The rotisseries we recognise from our local Highstreets were invented in the 19thCentury – an inheritance the industry keeps alive to this day.
Kebabs have won a treasured place in our country’s cuisine for one simple reason: the public loves them. To ensure that consumer experiences remain as positive as possible, the industry must hold itself to high standards and guarantee that staff have the skills they need.
The kebab industry relies on access to quality ingredients from around the world. Meats, vegetables and spices can be sourced from anywhere, Newcastle to New Zealand, which means a reliance on frictionless trade and long-term certainty when it comes to imports and exports.
Like so many of the retailers on our High Street, the majority of kebab restaurants are small businesses. A progressive and appropriate landscape for regulation can protect this valued industry and ensure that it continues you thrive.
