Lytham Debut for Tasty New Lancs Snack
FOODIE shoppers in Lytham will be among the first to taste a new snack which has got born and bred Lancashire credentials.
Roots Hand Cooked Vegetable Crisps are making their crunchy debut at Booths in Lytham this Saturday as part of a local produce tasting day (13th September).
The crisps are made from carrots, parsnips and beetroot grown in Lancashire and across the UK by Huntapac – a leading grower and supplier of vegetables which has a rich Lancashire heritage dating back to the Second World War.
Thinly sliced and hand cooked in pure sunflower oil and lightly seasoned with salt, Roots are being stocked in selected Booths stores across Lancashire, Cumbria and Yorkshire.
Booths is the first retailer to stock the snack which until now has only been available through wholesalers; it bolsters Huntapac’s relationship with the leading Northern retailer which it has been supplying with raw vegetables for the last 20 years.
Rachel Alty, Account Manager at Huntapac, said: “We’re very excited to be launching Roots direct to consumers for the very first time and it’s a real treat to see them in the Booths’ store in Lytham.
“Booths has an excellent reputation for supporting local producers and we are pleased to be strengthening our relationship with them.
“We hope people in Lytham will enjoy Roots and that the Huntapac story and the Lancashire heritage will resonate with consumers who are keener than ever to know how and where their food is produced.”
The Local Produce Tasting Day takes place from 10am-4pm in the main foyer at Booths in Lytham. A wicker hamper of vegetable goodies will also be up for grabs in a charity raffle.
