UK chips manufacturer Fairfields Farm picks up award

Leading artisan crisp producer, Fairfields Farm in the UK is celebrating the latest in a string of business awards as it walked away with the Made in Central and East of England Food & Drink Award. 

Beating off stiff competition from the likes of Premier Foods UK, Peck Drinks and Pioneer Foods, Fairfields Farm, which grows its own potatoes and produces its own hand-cooked crisps and snacks from its purpose-built factory on its farm in Wormingford, Essex, came out on top as the leading food and drink producer for the region. 

The Made in Central and East of England Awards are organised by Insider Media, a UK based regional B2B media company that celebrates all that’s great about manufacturing, shining a light on the region’s most innovative and dynamic manufacturers.

As a family-run firm that is 100% sustainable from renewable energy, Fairfields Farm continues to drive excellence through both its farming and manufacturing division, whilst producing the highest quality crisps and snacks for retail and food service. 

According to Robert Strathern, co-founder of Fairfields Farm, “Our brand continues to go from strength to strength. Over the last two years we’ve opened our own anaerobic digester and converted to 100% renewable energy, we’ve rebranded our fairfields farm crisps range, acquired an additional brand with Ten Acres and gained major listings with Holland & Barratt and Ocado.”

“It’s been a lot of hard work, but the recognition of awards like this make it all worthwhile.”

Fairfields Farm produces a range of hand-cooked crisps under the Fairfields Farm and Ten acre brands and is unique as a company that only makes crisps from potatoes it grows.
