Based out of the San Fransisco Bay area, 4505 Chicharrones started making artisanal pork rinds in 2009 after founder and CEO Ryan Farr wanted to eliminate waste in the traditional butchering process. The professionally trained chef and butcher started out making out chicharrones out of his kitchen and selling them at neighborhood bars as a sustainable snack.
Until September, the brand could only be found in Classic Chili & Salt. 4505 Chicharrones recently added Smokehouse BBQ and Jalapeño Cheddar to the line-up, along with a redesign in packaging.
With a big focus on minimizing waster, Farr said, “We’ve come a long way but have stayed committed to creating a delicious and sustainable snack.”
