Booming regional growth sets Burts up for expansion

Independent British snack brand Burts is expanding, after capitalising on growth with a raft of new innovation. As the company looks to continue to grow, it is hiring for 20 new permanent roles across a variety of departments within the business.

The Plymouth-based brand, which has achieved national acclaim for its products’ superior taste, all made with care in Devon using only the finest and locally sourced ingredients, is currently recruiting for Planners, Warehouse and Production Staff and has many other opportunities for career progression. Burts has grown 300% in the last five years and maintained its surging growth despite the pandemic. The brand is set for further progress in 2022 as it rebrands and launches a vast amount of new products.

Amongst the new products is the new limited-edition Prawn Cocktail flavour, featuring a co-designed pack with charity partner, the Royal National Lifeboat Institution (RNLI). Burts is also launching a range of new Lentil Chips, available in Lightly Sea Salted, Sour Cream & Chive and Barbecue flavours. In addition to this the snacking brand is also launching two crisps in an entirely new Ridges range – Steak Surf & Turf and Reaper Chilli & Lime.

Cornwall based 3 Daft Monkeys and mainstay of the Plymouth music scene Crazy Arm make up the line-up. The team at the Pavilions said “We established Pavilions Introduces around four years ago as a series of focused events to bring local acts to our stage. We are the biggest arena in the South West but we’ve also been an independent venue for the last decade so we have an opportunity to engage with our community and promote grassroots acts. Mad Dog were incredible here in August but we really had the bit between our teeth to host them for St Patrick’s Day, we had to make it happen, we can’t wait to see them back on our stage and with 3 Daft Monkeys and Crazy Arm it’s going to be an amazing night.”
