1983 – Tasty Chips 

Tasty Chips commenced in 1983 where the founder, Michael Santalucia, saw a niche in the fresh food industry market, to peel and process potatoes. Michael established Tasty Chips to supply many of Melbourne’s fast food outlets and function centres with fresh cut potato chips, from a small manufacturing plant in Seddon.

2005 – Current

Tasty Chips moves to purpose built site. As demands in the industry grew, Tasty Chips knew it was time to make a move. In late 2005, they moved to a new purpose built site with an upgraded state of the art facility and equipment. The extra room and added storage, allows for one way product flow and the ability to output any size order requirement.

Today we have the capacity of processing in excess of 200 ton a week.
