About the employer

Seabrook Potato Crisps is a UK brand of crisps produced in Bradford by Seabrook Potato Crisps Ltd. The company was founded in 1945 by Charles Brook, and the name arose because of an error in a photo-processing shop; instead of writing "C. Brook" on a film, a clerk wrote "Seabrook". Original production was in Allerton, but in 1979-80 a larger factory opened in the Princeville area of Bradford; production continued at the Allerton factory until 2004.Seabrook's crisps are distributed widely in the north of England, and increasingly in the south, and are also sold through mail order. At their Bradford factory, Seabrook make 17 different flavours of crisps.
