About Snyder of Berlin®
The Snyder family chip business began in 1920 in the home kitchen of Edward Snyder II and his wife, Eda, in a small town in Pennsylvania, using a recipe based on a snack that Edward had seen at a hotel in upstate New York.   As the popularity of their chips grew, they began to expand toward Pittsburgh. Potato buyers and farmers in the Laurel Highlands got together with the Snyder family and determined it made sense to build a self-sustaining chips plant amid their fields where the potatoes were being grown. Since opening that plant in 1947, Snyder of Berlin has been producing fresh and tasty snacks in the little farm town of Berlin, Pennsylvania.  The company has grown to include a variety of products beyond potato chips such as cheese snacks, popcorn and more – and for 65 years inviting snack lovers to “Taste the Difference”.
