Celebrating the launch of our partnership with Burts Snacks: Bude lifesavers join Dave McNulty, Managing Director of Burts Snacks, and Lucy Ashton, Regional Engagement Lead at the RNLI.

Burts Snacks is supporting the RNLI through a new 2-year partnership. The Plymouth-based company is helping to fund and raise awareness of our lifesaving work, while sharing vital water safety advice with its customers.

Munch and learn

Through the partnership, Burts Snacks and the RNLI have created some special edition RNLI packs of hand-cooked crisps in two flavours - Sea Salt, and Sea Salt and Malt Vinegar - and in two sizes - 150g and 40g packs. The new packaging features the RNLI Float to Live message and a QR code which directs people to a new RNLI section of the Burts Snacks website where they can find out more about our charity and leave a charitable donation.

The RNLI-branded Burts Snacks hand-cooked crisps are available in hundreds of pubs, bars, cafes and other outlets around the UK and Ireland, including all Costa Coffee shops and RNLI shops in the south-west of England.

Currently one of the UK’s fastest growing snack brands, Burts has grown 300% in the last 5 years, with a large share of sales taking place throughout the busy summer months.

As a British family-owned brand, the company is incredibly proud of its heritage and success on the south-west coast of England, which makes our new partnership a perfect fit.
