Thank you for coming to see us at IFE!

Posted by Viv on

FQ3A0333We had a brilliant time at IFE last week – the international food and drink exhibition held at ExCel every other year.

Phil and Karen spent four days meeting lots of our wonderful existing customers and meeting new fans of Brown Bag Crisps. We are so proud to be in our seventh year of trading and delighted that the feedback about our crisps is so positive.

Our recently-launched veggie crisps proved very popular, with nothing but compliments about their taste, crunch and look – not to mention

the fab packaging! The combination of beetroot, carrot and parsnip went down a storm!

We are really looking forward to continuing to supply Brown Bag Crisps’ loyal customers and a huge welcome to all our lovely new customers!


We’re in Selfridges, baby!

FQ3A0256We are very excited to announce that, from today, our crisps are available in Selfridges!

Brown Bag Crisps are now being sold in the Urban Food Fest deli. The deli is in Selfridges Food Hall, Orchard Street entrance, London, W1A 1AB and is open 7 days a week.

To celebrate the launch of the deli, we are asking customers to take a Brown Bag Crisps selfie in Selfridges and the best one will win a box of crisps!

We have a new member of the family!

veg-crispsWe are proud to announce the arrival of our amazing Veggie Crisps!

These delicious veggie crisps have less fat than other UK brands and the secret method of cooking them ensures the wholesome slices of beetroot, carrot and parsnip keep their size, shape and colour. A healthier snack with bags of natural flavour!

Not only are our new veggie crisps as delicious as their potato cousins, but they’re the healthiest vegetable crisp available in the UK.

Other vegetable crisps have almost 50% more calories and fat and 40% more salt than our delicious veggie crisps.

Like any proud parent, it’s hard not to boast, but we really think our veggie crisps are worth a try.

To request samples or to add veggie crisps to your next Brown Bag order, please email philandviv@brownbagcrisps.co.uk or call 01932 569359.


Brilliant recognition!

We are delighted to announce that Brown Bag Crisps has been voted one of the best snack brands by Fine Food Digest’s readers.

As a nation of snack lovers, the range of products on the market is huge, so we are particularly proud that so many retailers chose us as one of their favourites, especially considering how much bigger the other winning brands are.

Brown Bag Crisps are available in 40g and 150g bags and six flavours; Lightly Salted, Salt and Malt Vinegar, Oak Smoked Chilli, Mature Cheddar and Onion, Smoked Bacon and Tiger Prawn with a hint of Chilli and Lime (40g only).

The newest member of the Brown Bag Crisps family – Tiger prawn with a hint of chilli and lime

Posted by Viv on

We were delighted to see mention of the newest member of the Brown Bag Crisps’ family in Speciality Food magazine this month.

The Tiger Prawn with a hint of chilli and lime crisps, launched earlier this year, are proving just as popular as our more traditional flavours. They’re currently only available on 40g bags but we will be launching the sharing bags soon!

Looking forward to Caffe Culture

Posted by Viv on

Brown Bag Crisps launched at a trade fair in 2010 and since then we have gone from strength to strength.

It was quite nerve-wracking to walk into Speciality and Fine Food Fair in September of that year because we were very new to the crisps industry and didn’t know how well our crisps would be received. But, almost six years on, it was the best thing we have ever done and we haven’t looked back!

This year, we will be returning to Olympia’s Speciality and Fine Food Fair for the seventh time but before then, we will be at Caffe Culture, also at Olympia, London, on May 10 and 11.

Caffe Culture is the nation’s leading gathering place for the café and coffee community, which brings together those who have a passion for pushing the industry forward. The show comprises more than 25 hours of business presentations, 30 masterclass and workshops and over 230 exhibiting suppliers of which Brown Bag Crisps will be in the artisan section.

Do come and visit us at Caffe Culture to try our delicious crisps. We will be in the Artisan Food Market at stand number AM19. For more information go to http://www.caffecultureshow.com/
