Crisps brand Fairfields Farm have confirmed the purchase of Ten Acre snacks.

Fairfields Farm have been farming potatoes in East Anglia for three generations with their crisping potatoes hand-cooked on the farm.

Robert Strathern, founder of Fairfields Farm, said: “This is an exciting step for us. Ten Acre has the same values as Fairfields, so we felt they were a good fit. Additionally, their experience and rapid growth in export, opens up opportunities for us and joining forces means taking the best attributes of both brands and growing the Ten Acre and Fairfields brand together, for continued success.”

Tony Goodman, co-founder and chief eating officer of Ten Acre says; “We have a synergy with Fairfields Farm; both believing in great taste and premium quality.

“Export is to be a focus at Fairfields, which is great for Ten Acre, as we recently received the award for Export Champion from the Department for International Trade. Our joint attributes and parallel thinking will push both brands forward to become a force to be reckoned with in the snacking sector.”
