More than 1.6 million tonnes of potatoes are made into chips every year in the UK – weighing the same as over 14,000 blue whales or 4,000 jumbo jets.
The land required to grow potatoes for chips is 33,664 hectares – big enough to fit London's Hyde Park 237 times, or 47,000 Wembley football pitches.
Over 250 million fish and chip meals are sold in the UK each year.
In one year we eat nearly three billion meals containing chips, with dinnertime the most popular time to eat them (64%) and tea time the second favourite (24%).
Brits use at least 26 different words for fish and chips.
