San Carlo Gruppo Alimentare S.p.A. is an Italian manufacturer of snack foods, including crisps and crackers. International brands include the Spanish brand Crecs, French brands Flodor and Gardeil, and Highlander crisps in the United Kingdom.
Originally a rotisserie house, the 'Rosticceria San Carlo' was established in 1936 by Francesco Vitaloni in Milan and named in honour of a nearby church.
Initially, his production of potato products were as accompaniments to meats and fish dishes, however, the demand for them was very high, and he began exclusive production of 'Patatine croccanti' (crispy potatoes), and began distributing them to the local bakeries and bars.
