The History of Calbee
A major Japanese snack food maker, Calbee was founded in 1949. A few years into creating and distributing snacks in Japan, the company decided to begin exporting to Southeast Asia and Hawaii in 1966, before finally exporting to North America in 1967. Over the next few decades, Calbee continued to launch new products from potato-based snacks and vegetable crisps, to granola and more.
When the company launched Snapea Crisps in 1999, the world of healthy snacking changed forever. Today, the healthy snack alternative is known as Harvest Snaps and can be found in major retail stores across North America.
