covered bridge potato chip co. flavor,” Albright says. “We plan to introduce three new flavors this summer.” Covered Bridge Potato Chip Co. is one of the few producers of kettlecooked potato chips in North America. The company’s chips are “100 percent natural,” according to Albright. “We don’t use any artificial colors or flavors, preservatives or trans-fats,” he says. “We only use sea salt, so our chips are lower in sodium than most other potato chips. Also, our chips are certified as being 100 percent glutenfree, so they are appropriate for people with celiac disease.” The chips may be low in sodium, but they don’t skimp on flavor. “We are known for our bold seasoning – some of our varieties have 18 to 20 percent seasoning,” he says. “We use one variety of russet potatoes and sweet potatoes, and that, combined with the canola oil, produces a great-tasting chip.” QUALITY INSIDE AND OUT The quality and superior taste of Covered Bridge Potato Chip Co.’s product may bring consumers to make repeated purchases, but it’s the packaging that attracts them in the first place, as most consumer brands are well aware. Because the company focuses on all-natural, home-grown products with bold flavors, it is only fitting that the chips’ bag designs are bold and don’t feature some stock illustration. “All of our bags have unique designs – each variety is different,” Ryan Albright says. “The centerpiece of the design is hand-drawn by Wendy Cosman, who is a local artist.” Attention to Detail Covered Bridge Potato Chip Co. grows all of the potatoes it uses and has a HACCP program in place at its facility. Additionally, Albright notes, retailers gain assurance in the brand because each bag of chips can be traced back to the potatoes that were used. The brand is available in all of the provinces and territories in Canada and the southern region of the United States, but it also is “scattered about” in other regions, Albright says. “We are gaining new customers every day – people love our product,” he stresses. “We literally built this company from the ground up, and it’s great that we’ve been able to launch a brand from scratch and develop it in a competitive market, and we are still here after two years. We’re excited to keep going.” food and drink • summer 201 • www.fooddrink-magazine.com 1 85 http://www.fooddrink-magazine.com
