Joining the existing range of cook-at-home chip shop favourites in the freezer aisle – which includes pasties and battered sausages – the new products offer consumers a fast and convenient meal solution. Each Meal Box includes chips and is oven-ready, offering the consumer complete convenience.

The Meal Box range consists of a Crispy Battered Chicken Munchie Box (with a sachet of spicy seasoning and a curry dipping sauce), a Battered Sausage & Battered Burger Munchie Box (with curry dipping sauce and onion rings), and a classic Battered Sausage Supper.

The new range is available at 16 locations across Northern Ireland and are merchandised alongside the existing Tony’s Chippy frozen SKUs with the RRP ranging from £2 to £3.
