Our Story

What does the windmill have to do with great snacks?

Old Dutch first started in Winnipeg, Manitoba as a little chip company with a lot of heart. Soon, our tradition of making and delivering great-tasting snacks spread throughout all of Canada. Since 1954, our windmill has stood for quality and trust, old world charm, and a desire to create a long-lasting chip and snack tradition.

Old Dutch
isn’t just about chips. All this, plus great service, has kept Old Dutch in stores, in homes, and in the snack bowl, despite competition over the years from other snack-makers. Our customers trust in the high quality, great taste, and long-lasting tradition of Old Dutch.

Ask anyone in Western Canada if they remember eating Old Dutch chips when they were little. They all remember—the Old Dutch windmill, the great-tasting chips and dips, the colourful characters on the bags, the Old Dutch taste they enjoyed growing up.
