Joe’s Farm Crisps

Like a storyline from The Archers! How we helped a family farm to diversify into hand-cooked vegetable crisps

Crisps that are gluten-free, made form vegetables and hand-crafted… it’s what we’ve all been waiting for.

Joe’s Farm Crisps are carefully hand cooked at a small family farm located in the picturesque and rural Ballycurraginny in Co Cork.

These wholesome crisps come in three fantastic flavours Carrot, Parsnip and Beetroot, Potato Medley, and Beetroot, and they are all completely gluten-free.

Ultimate Digital has been working with the farming family to produce authentic-style pouches to create a real rustic and natural feel for the range of crisps.

And we’re so pleased with the results that we entered them in this year’s FlexoTech Awards ­– and discovered that we have been shortlisted, alongside some really big names in the industry.

Farmer Joe Burns and his wife Sandra came up with an innovative way to add value to the produce on their farm, resulting in a range of beetroot, carrot, parsnip and potato crisps delicately sprinkled with sea salt, which are deliciously crunchy and full of flavour.

These authentic style pouches are a paper laminate structure, designed to ensure the range has a rustic look – and Joe and Sandra are thrilled.

“We were delighted to team up with Ultimate Digital to help us launch our exciting and fresh new range of Crisp pouches, the vibrant packs have helped our sales massively already,” said Sandra.

Ultimate Digital has digitally printed these pouches, creating a beautiful waterpaint effect which glistens in the sunlight with a metallic shimmer. All of the designs were printed digitally in just one print run, which is perfect for small orders – and keeping up with demand for the most popular products, while allowing variations in designs.

Ultimate Digital print capabilities allow businesses like Joe’s Farm Crisps to change designs at no extra cost. Digital printing does not use any plates, meaning that design changes can be made as often as the brand would like, which makes the process pain-free and cost-free.

Hand-filled with care, this product is lovingly checked and carefully crafted to give their customers the very best vegetable crisps on the market.

Ultimate is proud to be working with a small independent business producing high-quality vegetable crips for all to enjoy. We can’t wait to watch them expand and launch new products in the future.
