Tastings and giveaways were also offered for free, and Pipers Crisps gifted over £1000 to local charities – St Andrews Hospice in Grimsby and Lindsey Lodge in Scunthorpe.
Alex Albone, founder of Pipers Crisps said, “We have a lot to thank our people for. They’ve helped the company grow from ‘one man and a van’ in 2004 to the successful business it is today.
“We now sell to around 5000 outlets in the UK; not supermarkets, but specialist retailers, delicatessens, farm shops, food service outlets and pubs.
“We’re also celebrating with our local community, recognising that agricultural Lincolnshire is a great place in which to base and grow a speciality food business. Pipers Crisps are, after all, ‘Made by Farmers’.”
