Local potato experts, McCormack Potato Ltd, Moy have extended their popular Nature’s Harvest range of potatoes by launching an exciting new grocery brand, Chippers – the perfect potatoes for chips. The premium chipping potatoes found in Chippers bags also have a unique pedigree. They are the same top quality potatoes supplied by McCormack’s to Northern Ireland’s No.1 Fish & Chip Shop, the Dolphin Takeaway, Dungannon which recently scooped the Regional Winner (NI) title in the prestigious National Fish & Chip Awards 2016.
Barry McCormack, Director at McCormack Potato Ltd said,

“Our research shows that shoppers are confused about which potato varieties make the perfect chips at home. Chippers appeals to chip loving families and takes the guess work out of choosing the best seasonal chipping potatoes for making the very finest, tastiest homemade chips, roasties and wedges. Chippers is already on the shelves in SuperValu, Centra and Mace stores throughout the province and is also available to shoppers through a growing number of independent grocery stores in NI.”

The Dolphin’s Malachy Mallon says he is delighted to endorse the new Nature’s Harvest Chippers brand and support his local supplier, “There’s an exact science behind the perfect chip, I believe that the experts at McCormack’s are the only potato people in the industry to fully understand that.  Correct storage, temperature, sugar content and exact dry matter percentages as well as the size, texture and handling quality of the potato all play very important roles.

The perfect chip should be deliciously fluffy but slightly creamy on the inside with just the right amount of golden colour and delicate crispy bite on the outside. Choosing the right potato is crucial for making award-winning chips.”
