About Burts

Burts offer an award-winning premium snacking range.

Our thick cut British Potato chips are hand-cooked in Devon, with real taste, proper crunch, and made by real people.

We locally source the best Red Tractor Assured potatoes, slice and cook them in batches, and season with the best flavours around, often sourced from local South West partners.

Our Lentil Waves offer the health-conscious snacker, a better for you alternative to our delicious crisps, without compromising texture, using the same authentic flavours as we do on our crisps.

What we stand for

We like to keep things simple, so we have a few principles we like to stick to when it comes to making our crisps and snacks

hand cooked potato chips

How it’s made

All Burts Potato Chips are prepared and cooked in small batches. The potatoes are peeled, then sliced, before being hand-cooked in the highest quality sunflower oil one batch at a time in purpose-built fryers. All our bags are stamped with the name of the Master Fryer who cooked the chips. It’s our way of celebrating our craft, but it’s also a seal of authenticity.


Flavours

Chillies from South Devon? Beef from Buckfastleigh? British Chorizo from Topsham? You’ve got it. When it comes to unique flavours, we’re the ones to beat. Where else will you find a range of snacks not only using local ingredients, but with diversity including the likes of Firecracker Lobster, Guinness®, and Quinoa crisps?


Innovation

We might make great crisps, but we never rest on our laurels. We wanted to bring the legendary flavours Burts Chips are known for to a new kind of healthy snack, and the result was Burts Lentil Waves – full of the flavours you know and love from Burts, at only under 99 calories a bag. Sounds like a no-brainer to us.

Our Fryers

Our Fryers

Chip, cook, season, bag. Job done, right? Not quite. Our team of Master Fryers personally select a batch of potatoes, see them through the slicer, hand-cook them, and sign the bags off. This personal touch not only keeps authentic skills alive, but it ensures that somebody – not a machine – is responsible for each bag of crisps that leaves our warehouse.

Burts Partner with RNLI

Burts Snacks is proud to announce an exciting two year partnership with the Royal National Lifeboat Institution (RNLI) to keep local communities safe and help spread the word about beach safety, including its Float To Live lifesaving advice.

Every year, volunteer lifeboat crews and lifeguards – which make up 95% of the RNLI – help and rescue thousands of people and have saved more than 143,000 lives since 1824. It is a truly remarkable organisation and as part of our partnership we will be sharing some of their incredible stories in our new Crunch Time series that will launch soon.

Burts has its roots in the South West which is home to some of the UK’s most beautiful beaches. To help raise awareness of the fantastic job the RNLI does and inform our consumers of vital water safety advice, the charity’s branding will be introduced on Burts’ Sea Salt and Sea Salt & Malt Vinegar 150g and 40g crisp packs from June 2021.

In a survey[1], commissioned by the RNLI, only 59% of those questioned – aged 16-64 – would try to float if they fell into open water and only 55% are confident that they would be able to float if they did fall into open water.

Burts’ new Sea Salt and Sea Salt & Malt Vinegar packaging will feature the charity’s key Float To Live messaging and a QR code which directs shoppers to a new RNLI section of the Burts website where they can leave a charitable donation. Through this and a number of other initiatives, we hope to play a pivotal role in supporting the RNLI in saving lives across the country this year and in 2022.

Dave McNulty, Managing Director of Burts Snacks, commented: “We are delighted to announce our partnership with the RNLI. It is an organisation which aligns closely with us as a business thanks to our geographical heritage and our love for the outdoors. We are very proud of our coastal roots, and we encourage people to appreciate everything the region has to offer with its fantastic food, rugged coastlines and amazing beaches. By supporting the RNLI we hope to play a role in supporting local communities and ensuring people enjoy the summer safely.

“We are very excited about the roll out of the partnership and hope that our support will enable the organisation to continue its fantastic job of saving lives at sea.”

Gareth Morrison, RNLI Head of Water Safety, said: ‘We are expecting this summer to be the busiest ever for our lifeguards and volunteer lifeboat crews. We want people to enjoy the coast but urge everyone to respect the water, think about their own safety and know what to do in an emergency.

“Think about planning your trip to a beach where lifeguards are patrolling to keep you, your family and friends safe, and also ensure you are aware of the RNLI’s safety advice before getting into the sea, wherever you are holidaying. As a charity we heavily rely on the support from companies like Burts Snacks, without them we wouldn’t be able to do the work we do and save lives.”
