BETTER MADE SNACK FOODS CELEBRATING 90 YEARS OF MAKING MICHIGAN’S FAVORITE SNACKS!
* Better Made captures 1st place in three divisions in national and international publications so far in 2020 – continues to help COVID-19 frontline workers and other charities
DETROIT, MI – On August 1, Better Made Snack Foods will begin its 90th anniversary celebration! Founded in 1930 as Cross and Peters Company, Better Made has blossomed into one of Michigan’s best-known iconic brand names. Better Made continues to support the community by raising funds for The National Multiple Sclerosis Society, Michigan Medicine CS Mott Children’s Hospital, frontline workers battling COVID-19 at various hospitals, police and fire stations, The American Red Cross/Michigan Flood Victims Relief Program and other charities.
The company recently took 1st place in three divisions in national and international publications: Best Original Potato Chip and best Wavy Potato Chip from www.thekitchn.com, a U.S.-based online daily food magazine and best BBQ flavored Potato Chip in the United States from The Wonderful World of Chips & Crisps 2020, a UK-based annual guide written by Paul Cassella.
Part of Better Made’s success is the development and release of delicious new products. So far in 2020 the company has released their Jalapeno Cheddar flavored Popcorn and Peanut Butter Filled Pretzels. The company has plans to launch between six and eight more products by year’s end.
“Our family has always taken pride in how we make our products with quality being paramount,” says CEO, Sam Cipriano. “From our humble beginnings when Detroit had over 20 potato chip manufacturers, we’ve tried to make the best product possible, and that hard work paid off as we’re the last one standing. I’ve always said, we’re not trying to be the biggest, we’re trying to be the best!
“We started in Detroit and we are committed to remaining in the city,” says David Jones, President of Better Made. “A great deal of our success and longevity can be attributed to our loyal customers and faithful employees. We’re grateful to each and every one of them and want to thank them for 90 wonderful years”.
Founded in 1930 in Detroit as Cross and Peters, and now celebrating its 90th year, Better Made continues to develop and provide a wide variety of high quality award-winning snack foods, including assorted regular and flavored potato chips and potato sticks, gourmet popcorn, pretzels, tortilla chips, pork rinds, and more! The family-owned company uses locally grown potatoes and trans fat-free cottonseed oil. For more information, please visit www.bettermade.com.
