They may be seen as quintessentially English, but Tyrrells crisps are consumed in 37 export markets, with Australia being the latest country added to the list. The hand-cooked potato snacks are made on the Herefordshire farm where the business started 13 years ago, but if sales to Australia meet expectations, the company says it is considering opening a manufacturing base there. Exports reached an annualised £10.8m in 2014, under chief executive David Milner, 52.
