The Seabrooks Story
We’ve been chatting with Seabrooks about their history and we’ve learnt a lot of interesting facts!
Seabrooks was established in 1945 by Mr Charles Brook and is still family owned after being passed down the generations.
In the 1950’s Seabrooks became Britain’s first Crinkle Cut Crisp Brand after Charles Brook and Colin Brook moved into their first factory – a one up one down terrace house in Bradford and started delivering crisps door to door.
In 1956 the world crisp eating competition was hosted by Seabrooks in Bradford.
In 1959 Seabrooks had their very own pop up mobile van shop and by the 1960’s Seabrooks crisps were being sold coast to coast!
In 1978 Seabrooks purchased a site at Duncombe Street Bradford and 2 years later opened the Princeville factory which is still used today.
Despite Colin Brook being best mates with Sir Ken Morrison he refused to deal with Supermarkets until 1996!
In 2004 Seabrooks beat the Guinness world record for the largest packet of crisps, it weighed 51.35kg!
In 2007 MSG, all e-numbers and any other unnecessary artificial ingredients were removed by reformulating the flavours.
