Seabrook Potato Crisps

Seabrook Potato Crisps (often shortened to Seabrook's) is a UK brand of crisps produced in Bradford, England by Seabrook Potato Crisps Ltd.

The company was founded in 1945[1] by Charles Brook, and the name arose because of an error in a photo-processing shop; instead of writing "C. Brook" on a film, a clerk wrote "Seabrook". Original production was in Allerton, but in 1979-80 a larger factory opened in the Princeville area of Bradford; production continued at the Allerton factory until 2004.[2] Seabrook's crisps are distributed widely in the north of England, and increasingly in the south, and are also sold through mail order.

In the 1980s the company introduced sunflower oil to the cooking process, and in 2007 was the first crisp brand to remove MSG from all its crisps. In 2011 Seabrook Crisps launched its Goodbye salt Hello flavour range under a tagline "with at least 90% less salt, but 100% great taste", in line with government objectives to lower salt intake. The salt was substituted with sugar.

The crisps, sold in 25gm packets, are salted with sea salt and are produced in a range of new and traditional flavours. The packaging is foil; it was previously plastic with a window to view the crisps, and the words "See What You Buy" on the face.
