This year we are celebrating 65 years of sharing moments with our customers.  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.

 

With products such as Old Dutch Potato Chips, RESTAURANTE™ Premium Tortilla Chips and Salsas, Arriba Tortilla Chips, Dutch Crunch Kettle Cooked Potato Chips, it’s easy to see why we have a flavour favourite for everyone.
