Tyrrell's ChipsWell-known UK brand Tyrrells Crisps are now being manufactured in Victoria’s Yarra Valley.

The crisps product first hit Australian shores in 2014. Current brand owner, Bahrain-based Investcorp, started its Australian venture by importing the crisps from the UK. The decision to start local manufacturing followed its acquisition of the business, Yarra Valley Snack Foods in August 2015.

The Yarra Valley site is the first place outside of the UK to make Tyrrells Crisps.

Tyrrells said although the site has changed its traditional cooking technique has not.

“Just like their English counterparts, the new Tyrrells potato crisps are hand cooked in small batches with their jackets on,” Tyrells said in the announcement.

Tyrrells Crisps can be purchased from Coles and Woolwroths supermarkets in 165g packets with a recommended retail price of AUD $4.49. The crisps come in a variety of flavours including lightly sea salted, Mature Cheddar Cheese and Chive and Honey Soy Chicken.
