As the fabulous '50s rolled in with rock 'n' roll, Old Dutch Foods decided to dance its way into Canada. They opened their Winnipeg plant in 1954, the same year Marilyn Monroe married Joe DiMaggio.

My first job at Old Dutch, as a five-year-old dressed in a Dutch costume (handmade by my mother), was to pass out bags of our potato chips to cheering people at local festival parades. Many years later, I am honoured to lead our company, still owned by our family, into its 70th year of providing the highest quality snack foods to our Canadian customers. At Old Dutch we’re constantly reimagining snacks, from our invention of the Sour Cream and Onion potato chip in the late sixties, to the newest trends in flavours for kettle chips, tortillas, extruded corn and other Old Dutch snacks available at your favourite retail establishment.

We continually strive to offer the best version of all our snacks by rigorous application of best manufacturing practices and by use of the highest quality ingredients. Whether you prefer a traditional RIP-L potato chip or a spicy new snack, we have something you’ll love to share with friends and family. From my Old Dutch family to yours, we invite you to share our excitement in our 70th year and enjoy an Old Dutch product at your next snacking occasion.
