Premium Quality since 1926

In 1926, Laura Clough Scudder started Laura Scudder’s in Monterey Park, California making potato chips. Naming the company after herself reflected her personal dedication and pride in offering the highest quality and best tasting food products available in the market. Throughout her lifetime, Mrs. Scudder’s was credited for many innovations in the food industry. Most notably was the introduction of wax paper bags as a packaging solution for potato chips. Historically, potato chips, prior to wax paper bags, were packaged in barrels or tins. The wax paper bags allowed potato chips to be stored in a more stable and secure environment keeping them fresher longer while also reducing crumbling. This wonderful invention allowed potato chips to be mass marketed, making them a new convenience food. Laura Scudder’s was also credited as the first company to imprint a freshness date on their food products, once again setting the standard, which is now mandatory for today’s food products. Mrs. Scudder’s superior products and innovative solutions made Laura Scudder’s brand a household name on the west coast.

Amazing Innovation

Fun Fact! Scudder began putting dates on their potato chip bags, becoming the first company to show a freshness date on its food products and sold in twin packs to further reduce staleness and crumbling. This Family brand has always been focused on innovation and expanding our product line. We are in over 5,000+ US stores and growing.
