US: Inventure Foods invests more than $6 million in kettle-cooked potato chip manufacturing

Specialty foods marketer and manufacturer, Inventure Foods, Inc. (Nasdaq: SNAK), announces today an expansion of its existing kettle-cooked potato chip manufacturing capacities to add four new 300-pound commercial kettles and appropriate potato processing equipment to its Bluffton, Ind. manufacturing facility. The move provides a 50 percent increase to current kettle-cooked capacity, resulting in an additional 100,000 pounds of finished product per week. The new kettle lines, which go live this month, allow Inventure to keep pace with growing consumer interest in its better-for-you line of Boulder Canyon Authentic Foods’ potato chips. “We are fortunate to have a strong legion of Boulder fans who value our quality-first approach and who appreciate the importance of real food ingredients,” said Terry McDaniel, Chief Executive Officer of Inventure Foods.
