Known for its crinkle-cut and lattice ranges, this company’s Yorkshire factory produces 20m bags of gluten-free and vegetarian-friendly crisps a month. Chief executive Jonathan Bye, 52, led the business to a profit of £2.6m in 2015, having turned it around from losses. In July last year, private equity firm LDC acquired the business for £35m, ending 70 years of family ownership. As part of the deal, former Golden Wonder chief executive Paul Monk, 59, became chairman. The company launched overseas this year, in the UAE, and is exploring other markets.
