Burts Potato Chips set to become the UK’s leading privately owned premium snacking company

Great news from Burts Potato Chips HQ as we celebrate our acquisition of Savoury & Sweet, one of the fastest growing players within the Popcorn and Healthy Snacking sector – a company that exclusively makes products for UK household-name brands. This is an exciting step for both businesses that will effectively enable Burts to become one the leading UK-privately owned premium snacking companies.

But before we get ahead of ourselves, we will of course remain true to our South West roots and stay headquartered in Plymouth – Devon has been Burts Chips’ home since we were founded in 1997. We will be using Savoury & Sweet’s facility in Leicester as a second site to expand our production capabilities, particularly for our ‘Better For You’ ranges, which means even more of our delicious products to devour. We’re pleased to confirm that all 118 employees based in Leicester will be retained and the business will soon be rebranded under the Burts Snacks name.

This is an exciting time for everyone working at Burts and Savoury & Sweet and we’re looking forward to bringing new and exciting innovation to all our snack-loving fans.
