Lancashire Crisps

A firm favourite at Booths, Lancashire Crisps have been farming their potatoes from the rich black soils of Rufford, Lancashire and turning them into the delicious crisps stocked on our shelves. Once farmed, the potatoes are then hand-cooked and flavoured with tastes of the region such as Dewlay Cheese in their Creamy Lancashire Cheese and Onion flavour.

John Fiddler started the brand after wanting a better trade for his potatoes compared to his farmer neighbours. His grandfather began making crisps by hand many years before and John and his family enjoyed them so much, it inspired him to give it a go himself.
