We source most of these potatoes from Irish farmers in Meath, Dublin, Louth and Wexford. All our crisps are cooked in 100% pure Sunflower oil.

Natural Ingredients

The Gweedore factory is based in the Gaeltacht area of North West Donegal and is Irish speaking in the workplace. We make our extruded and fried savoury snacks in this factory. Our ingredients are based on natural grains and vegetables e.g. corn, potatoes, cassava, rice, etc.
