CRIX Cracker


The Bermudez Family came to Trinidad at the turn of the century and became involved in manufacturing Water Crackers and cookies in 1923. At first, only 'Water Crackers' were made and very little machinery was used, most of the production was manual. The ovens were built of bricks and used firewood fuel. Water Crackers and Cookies at the time were packed by hand into wooden barrels and later on in steel drums, which gave birth to the steel band.

During the 1930's the company began distributing its products throughout the island directly to the shops, a practice which still exist today.

During the 2nd World War exports began just to Grenada an d St. Vincent and as the years progressed to the islands of Barbados, Jamaica, St. Lucia, Dominica, Antigua, St. Kitts and to Guyana.

Today, Bermudez Crackers and Cookies are made in a modern automated facility and the brandnames Bermudez and Crix are household names throughout the Caribbean Islands.


Two Generations later faced with borderless trading, Bermudez made strategic investments outside of the island of Trinidad and Tobago.

In 1996 Bermudez formed a strategic alliance in the island of Barbados an in 1998 another investment was made in Jamaica.

There are now three Plants manufacturing and distributing Crackers and Cookies in strategic locations, a Salty Plant and a Bread and Cake Plant located in the island of Trinidad and Tobago.

This organization provides employment for 2500 persons. A very strong distribution network has developed in the southern and northern Caribbean region with a population reach of six million people servicing some 50,000 trade channels with 500 vehicles, delivering, ON TIME, freshly baked products on a daily basis to customers.


In addition to their traditional design of one regular cracker, Crix have been produced in many different varieties since they were first introduced. The following list is simply a guide to some of the more notable and recent variations.

  • Original Crix - The initial recipe and parent to a line of taste-bud-stimulating products.
