Seabrook Potato Crisps (often shortened to Seabrook's) are a brand of crisps in the United Kingdom. They are produced in the Northern English city of Bradford and are extremely popular in the north, though less so in the south. The company does offer a mail order service, where customers can buy boxes of 48 packets of crisps, and can mix flavours. They are best known for the use of sea salt on their crisps and for offering a list of unusual flavours, together with more traditional ones. These have included cream cheese and chive, Indian tandoori and Mexican chilli.

The company was founded in 1945[1] by Charles Brook, and is believed the name arose due to an error in a photo processing shop; instead of writing C. Brook on his film, the clerk wrote Seabrook, and the name stuck.[2] The original Seabrook factory was in the Allerton area of Bradford, opening a larger factory in the Princeville area during 1979/80,[3] however, production continued at the Allerton factory until 2004.[4]

Each crisp packet contains 31.8 grams, and until recently was made from the traditional crisp packet plastic, that allows for a window to view the crisps, and emblazoned with the words "See What You Buy" on the front. The Seabrook company has since changed its packaging to foil.

The company is a co-founder and sponsor of The Blah! Party, a registered political party currently led by punk rocker Raymond 'Captain Sensible' Burns.[5]
