Business concept: Produce fresh and uniquely branded potato chips

  

Snackfresh, based in Cape Town, South Africa, is inviting African entrepreneurs to partake in a unique business opportunity to manufacture fresh and natural potato chips.

The Snackfresh cooker produces fresh potato chips in three minutes.

Snackfresh chips are available in two varieties, namely the Basic SupaChips range as well as our Healthier Snackfresh option:

  • SupaChips is our “normal” range of crisps, but is super in flavour, super in taste and super in texture. SupaChips is available in six traditional flavours: Barbeque, Cheese, Chicken, Salt and Vinegar, Chutney and Tomato.
  • Snackfresh’s healthier range, which is MSG, preservative and trans fat free, is available in eight natural flavours: Plain, Salt & Malt Vinegar, Sweet Grilled Chili, Sour Cream & Onion, Boerewors, Chargrilled Seasalt, White Cheddar, and Wasabi. Unlike factory chips that are made hundreds or thousands of miles away, weeks or months before you see them, Snackfresh allows customers to snack on a fresh bag of chips at almost the exact moment that they are made, or shortly thereafter.

The manufacturing process works as follows:

  • Whole potatoes are fed through the Snackfresh cooker
  • The machine then cuts the potato into chips and fries them into crispy perfection
  • Once this is done, the chips are seasoned and packaged by hand
  • The entire journey from potato to a Snackfresh chip is about three minutes
  • The quality of the chip is manually controlled as is the seasoning and packaging of the chips
