Reinventing a Classic Snack: Sustainable (and Sustainably Packaged) Popcorn

by Adele Peters

December 28, 2012

They turned to the ingredients next, choosing organic popcorn, and eliminating GMOs and preservatives. They were surprised by how difficult it was to make the changes, as they write on their website:

I’m not sure we would have started this journey had we known how hard it would be. The thing is, once we got going we had to see it through. We hit every road block imaginable. Along the way we also had our eyes opened to the food system and the incredible changes taking place.
 
We are not activists. We don’t eat the right food all the time. We are, however, blown away by all the crap that gets thrown in with the food we buy. Most of the time it’s completely needless. While begging suppliers to pull it out we constantly got the answer, that’s just how it’s done. Sometimes they didn’t even know why.
After a successful Kickstarter campaign last year, Quinn Popcorn is now out in stores and online.
