Specialità alimenti marketer and manufacturing Inventure Foods Inc. has announced an expansion of its existing kettle-cooked potato chip manufacturing capacities to add four new 300-pound commercial kettles and appropriate potato processing equipment to its Bluffton, Ind. manufacturing facility.
The move provides a 50% increase to current kettle-cooked capacity, resulting in an additional 100,000 pounds of finished product per week.
The new kettle lines, which go live this month, allow Inventure to keep pace with growing consumer interest in its better-for-you line of Boulder Canyon Authentic Foods’ potato chips.
Terry McDaniel, CEO of Inventure Foods, said: “The challenge for us has been keeping up with consumer demand, […] we’ve invested fully into our Bluffton plant to add kettle cooking capabilities that follow in form and function to what we have always used. In doing so, we’ve met current needs while allowing for future growth, and we’ve done it all in a manner that remains true to the Boulder brand.”
Boulder Canyon Authentic Foods is one of the fastest-growing minimally-processed potato chip brands in the U.S.
