Heartland Gourmet Potato Chips

South Canterbury farmer Raymond Bowan grew up around potatoes. As a young lad he earned his pocket money digging up spuds on the neighbouring property, returning home after a long day’s work with mud on his boots, dirt under his nails and a satisfied grin on his face. Years later, when the local chip factory closed its doors, Raymond seized the opportunity to fulfil a lifelong dream, and Heartland Chips was born. To this day the potatoes we use are grown on the Bowan family farm at Fallgate, just outside of Timaru, South Canterbury, New Zealand.  When they leave Fallgate the potatoes are transported 30km down the road to the Heartland Chip factory, where they’re sliced, cooked, packaged and distributed to outlets throughout New Zealand, Singapore and, now, Australia!

Heartland Gourmet Potato Chips

It’s no mistake our chips look, taste (and sound!) so good – it’s the result of relentless care and attention to detail through every stage of the manufacturing process.
It starts with the perfect soil, and the ideal potato variety. From there we nurture our spuds as they grow, before carefully harvesting them and transporting them 30km down the road to our state-of-the-art factory.

Then they’re cooked in High Oleic Sunflower Oil and Canola Oil (none of that nasty Palm Oil, thank you very much), flavoured with gluten-free flavourings and distributed to supermarkets and shops throughout New Zealand, Australia and Singapore.

The result of all this attention to detail is an outstanding and 100% kiwi potato chip.
