Kent Crisps is an award-winning range of handcooked crisps made using Red Tractor Assured British-grown potatoes. By working closely with local producers, we have used real Kent products to give a local twist on the nation’s favourite flavours.

This is coupled with each pack featuring iconic landmarks and landscapes from Kent to promote the county’s rich tourism offering. The range includes seven delicious flavours: Sea Salt, Oyster & Vinegar, Ashmore Cheese & Onion, Smoked Chipotle Chilli, Sea Salt & Vinegar with Biddenden Cider, Ham & Mustard and our most recent launch, Lamb & Rosemary.

Alongside working with local producers, we also ensure that all our potatoes are Red Tractor Assured, which means they have been grown to strict standards, and the potato variety used for each hand-cooked batch is indicated on the back of each pack. So whether you’re supporting a local producer by buying food and drink from them direct, or picking up a pack or two of Kent Crisps, you can be sure that you’re helping to support our local economy, and driving change in our food systems systems, which is of benefit to all.

Our ethos at Kent Crisps has always been about championing the very best our county has to offer. We are extremely proud to work with some of Kent’s finest producers, creating flavours using real produce to bring a local twist to the nation’s best-loved flavour combinations.

At a time when supporting local is very much at the forefront of people’s minds, we continue to be committed to showcasing Kent’s rich offering, from our fantastic food and drink producers to the historic landmarks and tourist attractions, as well as the landscapes and coastal views the county is famous for.

Here’s a little more information on some of the flavour partners we work with:

Ashmore Cheese & Onion - Ashmore cheese is produced by Cheesemakers of Canterbury, using local milk in Dargate, near Faversham, and is a farmhouse-style cheese, with a strong, distinct flavour.

Smoked Chipotle Chilli – Made using jalapeño chillies from the Kent Chilli Farm, who grow all their own chillies to produce a range of sauces and condiments, as well as selling plants for those who fancy growing their own at home!

Sea Salt & Vinegar with Biddenden Cider – It’s not just Kent food we love, our drinks producers are brilliant, too. Biddenden Cider is produced to the Barnes family’s traditional recipe, made using local apples, so in turn they support other local farmers, too.

Lamb & Rosemary – The newest addition to our range, made using grass-fed Romney lamb from Kent Shepherd. All the flavour of a classic Sunday roast, in a crisp
