The Herr Foods story began in 1946 when 21-year-old James Stauffer Herr bought a small potato chip company in Lancaster, Pennsylvania. HerrÂâ€Ã¢„¢s was distributing its products in eleven states. With a continued commitment to quality, more than 1,000 Herr's employees ensured their state-of-the-art manufacturing processes produce great tasting snacks. They operated nearly 500 sales routes and 23 warehouse locations. Herr Foods growth and the construction of additional warehouse brought the total plant area to 212,000 square feet.
 
The products they deal in are potato chips, pretzels, tortilla chips, cheese curls, popcorn, other items and the recipes are Appetizers, Entrees, Desserts and Snacks.

The good news is, smart snacking is easy. Potato chips, pretzels, tortilla chips and popcorn fit comfortably within the bread group because of their levels of dietary fiber and complex carbohydrates. Each has a manageable amount of calories and fat per serving, not to mention some significant surprises such as Vitamin C, calcium and potassium. Herr's snacks are available in a variety of forms to meet many preferences and needs from no salt added and lightly salted to low fat and fat free.

In the new millennium Herr Foods is a leader in the snack food industry. They continually introduce the innovative products and packaging needed to satisfy ever changing appetites and tastes. Their full line of quality snacks currently consists of more than 340 items including potato chips, pretzels, tortilla chips, cheese curls, popcorn, crackers, nuts, pork rinds, onion rings and meat sticks. All are available in a variety of shapes, sizes and flavors. They maintain the highest standard of service to their retail customers through their dedicated sales force. Their company owned and operated sales routes and localized distribution network delivers their snacks directly from the factory to the shelf. Doing so enables them to guarantee each and every snack is as fresh and tasty as it was intended.
 
The employees are given various benefits such as medical and dental plans, short term disability program, life insurance program, employee assistance program, open door policy, 401k plan etc.
 
Their commitment is to provide products and service of outstanding quality and to operate the company on Christian principles is as strong as ever. They're grateful to all the people who work so hard to ensure that these commitments endure.
