We were sad to hear today that Corkers Crisps suffered a devastating fire at the end of May this year. No-one was hurt, but the fire caused a lot of damage.

“As part of the crisp manufacturing process, there was a huge amount of combustible material within the building – things like oils and packaging, and again that led to the fire spreading extremely quickly.”

The Taylor family have been growing potatoes at their Fenland farm for six generations. Corkers, founded in 2010, uses traditional methods to hand-cook its multi-award-winning crisps. Here’s hoping that the business is back to full capacity soon.
