  At Proper Crisps we believe in real food. We were tired of settling for over-processed, artificially-flavoured potato chips so we decided to make our own. In 2007, we travelled around the world in a quest to find out how to make a truly outstanding crisp.On our travels around the USA we came across a traditional crisp fryer and we knew we had to have it, if we were to learn the art of making a great crisp.
When we came back to New Zealand we set about sourcing the finest South Island Agria potatoes. We found them in Temuka, where a family that has been growing potatoes for three generations is as passionate about potatoes as we are. We found the finest quality High Oleic Sunflower oil, and Marlborough Sea Salt from the Lake Grassmere salt flats. Then, after a lot of experimentation in our small factory located in the rolling hills of the Upper Moutere near Nelson, we succeeded in making a product that everyone was happy with. We decided to call them "crisps" instead of "chips" to make the distinction between our hand cooked crisps and mass produced chips.
