Herbert Prohaska mit Kelly's Chips


(Vienna, 17 Sept 2018, Kelly) The highlight event of the Soccer World Cup brought good sales for Kelly. And in autumn, the next peak season will already start at our plant in Vienna Donaustadt. That is when fresh potatoes from Vienna’s environs will be delivered directly to our factory by the some 90 Austrian potato farmers. In just two to three days from harvest, first-class Austrian potatoes become top-quality potato chips for the Kelly’s brand, the number one in the crunchy snack market. Every year, Kelly processes approx. 27,000 tons of domestic potatoes, having been the clear number one in the chips segment for decades with a market share of around 50%.
