about Deep River Snacks

Here at Deep River Snacks, our mission is to challenge and redefine the snack industry while inspiring our communities to do the right thing. Our passion stems from the simple fact that 'we give a chip:'

'We Give A Chip' about creating great tasting snacks made from pure ingredients anyone can feel good eating. With the mantra of “flavor first,” we've cultivated a following for our unique kettle cooked potato chip varieties like Sweet Maui Onion, NY Spicy Dill Pickle, Rosemary & Olive Oil and Aged Cheddar & Horseradish. All of our products are Certified Gluten-Free, Non-GMO, Kosher, Nut Free, and do not contain any artificial flavors, colors or preservatives.

 'We Give A Chip' about supporting amazing charities too and, to that end, each of our bags features a non-profit organization that has touched a Deep River Snacks employee. Giving back is a core founding principle of our company; in 2014, 14% of profits were donated to charity.
