Walkers is a snack food manufacturer in the United Kingdom best known for manufacturing crisps.

History

In the 1880s Henry Walker moved from Mansfield to Leicester to take over an established butcher's shop in the high street. Meat rationing after World War II saw the factory output drop dramatically and the company looked at alternatives to make use of the wasted capacity. With potato crisps being increasingly popular with the public, managing director R.E. Gerrard helped the company shift focus and began hand-slicing and frying potatoes.

Present day

Walkers are now owned by Frito-Lay, which in turn is a subsidiary of Pepsico, though they are still a significant presence in Leicester and sponsor the Leicester City F.C. football team who play in the Walkers Stadium. Gary Lineker, formerly a Leicester City footballer is now the face of the company, starring in most of their advertising campaigns.

The official website states that an estimated "11 million people will eat a Walkers product every day". The company employs over 4000 people in 15 locations.
