Burts Potato Chips Secures Growth Through Costa Coffee
One of UK’s leading independent snacking companies has marked the next stage in its growth towards GBP100m worth of sales by 2022, announcing nationwide distribution of Burts Potato Chips through the Costa Coffee chain.
According to retailtimes.co.uk, Burts Snacks has revealed the new listing following its GBP7m investment into the business last year. This aided the introduction of a range of new frying and popping techniques across its two manufacturing facilities, helping Burts to satisfy increasing demand for its unique products. The Plymouth and Leicester based business forecasts sales of GBP54.3m by the end of this financial year, as it continues to outperform in the chips, snacks and nuts category.
Burts Snacks’ top-selling hand cooked chips, Burts Potato Chips, will be available in four flavors – Sea Salt, Sea Salt & Malted Vinegar, Mature Cheddar & Spring Onion and Sweet Chilli – at Costa Coffee stores across the UK from March 2020.
Simon Knight, sales & marketing director at Burts Snacks, commented: “The growth of the business over the last six years has been extraordinary, and our confirmed distribution with Costa Coffee is a huge step on our journey to achieving sales of GBP100m in the next two years. We’re committed to producing the highest quality snacks using the best local, British ingredients, and to be able to guarantee that consumers across the UK can enjoy those products is a testament to our efforts.”
Eric Tavoukdijan, commercial marketing director at Costa Coffee, added: “At Costa Coffee, we’re passionate about providing our customers with the highest quality produce and are constantly on the lookout for innovative products from provenance-based, authentic brands, that will appeal to everyone who walks through our doors.”
