Garden harvest debuts as chips

Tropical Foods has launched York's Harvest Garden Chips, a crunchy snack chip made from real vegetables. The garden chips are all natural with the vegetables dried, fried in canola oil and lightly seasoned with sea salt. "They are delicious and all natural, and are a great alternative to potato chips and other snack chips," says Chad Hartman, brand manager for Tropical Foods.
Current Garden Chip varieties include mixed vegetable chips, which are an assortment of green beans, sweet potato, taro root, squash and carrots. The line also includes green bean snacks and okra snacks.
The chips are packaged in a PS tray from D&W Fine Pack ( with a lid and shrink band and are produced at Tropical Foods' plant in Charlotte, NC. "We like this package because it shows the product," says Hartman. "We believe our high-quality products sell themselves and show them at every opportunity."
