In 1939 Charles Brook was about to open his famous fish & chip restaurant in Bradford. A few days before he took some photos to be developed and when he collected them he found that they had got his name slightly wrong. Fantastically wrong.
The name on the photos was not Mr C Brook but Seabrook.
Charles said, "Sounds good, that'll look good outside my restaurant. I'll have it."
A few years later in 1945, his son Colin returned from the navy after the Second World War had ended. A few late nights later a small argument and a slapped leg, and an inspirational idea - they came up with a fantastic business idea: Seabrook Crisps.
They had the potatoes. They had the fryer. They had the recipes. They thought, why not?
Seabrook Crisps have enjoyed popularity in the north of England for over sixty years, and were only to be found south of the Pennines in the last couple of years.
Famous for their crunchy crinkle cut and their quirky, strong flavours, Seabrook pioneered the use of sea salt and sunflower oil long before it became trendy to do so.
There's no nonsense in a Seabrook Crisps packet. Today, they have the biggest range of clean-label flavours in Britain - and that's history in the making.
