Heartland Potato Chips is the classic kiwi ‘can do’ story – 100% kiwi owned to the bottom of the bag.

A Kiwi farmer. A Kiwi farm. A GREAT Kiwi potato chip. It doesn’t get much more kiwi than that.

One day, as the Bowan family – founders and owners of Heartland Potato Chips – sat around the kitchen/boardroom table, Raymond Bowan had an idea – and a good one at that. “Let’s make a range of kettle-cooked chips” he said. So they did.

Now, the Bowan family are fulfilling a life-long dream – producing their own potato chips, in their own factory, from their own potatoes. “That way” said Raymond, “I know these are quality potato chips that I’m proud to put my name on”

The chips in every packet of Heartland Chips are made from potatoes grown on Bowan family farm at Fallgate, just outside of Timaru, South Canterbury.  Fresh from the ground they are transported 30km down the road to the Heartland Chips factory in Washdyke, where they are batch cooked in a special blend of all-natural oils.

From the factory, Heartland Chips are sent straight to the supermarkets, often arriving later the very same day they were prised from the ground. How’s that for freshness!

Heartland Chips are GLUTEN FREE with NO Trans Fat, NO Hydrogenated Fat and NO Palm Oil. 

A family of chip lovers, there are several ‘chips off the old block’ at Heartland Chips. Each stage of the crop is carefully monitored by Raymond and Adrienne’s son James (Fallgate farm manger)  and daughter Charlotte (Heartland Chips general manager) so that only the very best potatoes will end up in your Heartland packet.

From our family to yours. The result is an outstanding – and 100% Kiwi – potato chip that we hope you enjoy as much as we do producing them.

Heartland Potato Chips are found throughout New Zealand – at a supermarket or stockist near you
