Our children were small. Our eldest son had special needs and there weren’t enough hours in the day. We dreamed of change and of a life centred around our family. We wanted to create something new, together.
On our travels in North America we came across a small company that sold home-made potato crisps. We fell in love with this simple, authentic and delicious snack, which dated back to 1860, and decided to start our own little production at home in Sweden.
We started working on producing the very first Svenska LantChips crisps there and then. Our sense of adventure and curiosity were what pushed us forward. Over the years we have managed to develop several varieties of naturally crunchy crisps, our own energy-efficient deep fryers, collaboration with potato farmers all around the country, and much more.
It has been both more difficult and even more exciting than we imagined it would be, but now, 25 years later, it feels fantastic that we dared to do it. And the Svenska LantChips crisps adventure continues. Hope you’ll want to join us …
