Sea Chips has secured a listing in Sainsbury’s stores in the UK for its three-strong range of salmon skin crisps.
The Sea Chips range was created by Dan Pawson and Dom Smith, who came up with the idea when working as chefs and discovering that the majority of salmon skin is thrown away – despite it being full of nutrients and protein.
Taking inspiration from popular Asian fish skin crisps, Sea Chips aims to tackle the global issue of food waste by using often-discarded but nutrient-packed salmon skin to create a healthy snack alternative to potato chips.
Made with only natural ingredients, the gluten-free snacks are available in three flavours: lightly salted, lime and chilli, and salt and vinegar.
Earlier this year, Sea Chips secured the backing of industry mogul and investor, Jonathan Brown, helping the founders to scale-up their business and build a new factory in Cumbria.
Dan Pawson said: “Launching with Sainsbury’s as part of their Taste of the Future scheme is a huge milestone for Sea Chips and we’re delighted to have been selected as one the brands to kick of this innovative trial – it is a true testament of our success to date.”
