It all began with a vision and a van—a vision to fuse the natural with the savory, to create a great tasting, wholesome product everyone would fall in love with. And a beat-up van that would become the very first Kettle Foods delivery truck. We had already been making roasted nuts and other natural goodies for a few years when, on that fateful day in 1982, we perfected the very first bags of Kettle Brand® potato chips. We probably should have kept them around to put in a display case someday, but they were just too darned good. Needless to say, an obsession was born. From that very first day, though, a single philosophy has guided us: use only the freshest, all-natural ingredients to create intensely flavored, wonderfully craveable potato chips you can feel good about eating.
