Everybody loves popcorn — the granddaddy of all snack foods. Discovered in the Americas thousands of years ago, popcorn has captivated people for centuries with its magical charm. Yet through the ages, popcorn has remained relatively unchanged. Popcorn is a seed, which just happens to do some nifty things when heated.

The Popcorn Board is made up of popcorn companies who are responsible for getting that little seed to you in whatever form you choose — kernels, ready-to-eat, or microwave. We’re not necessarily farmers, but most of us come from farming or agricultural backgrounds. Some of our parents and grandparents grew popcorn, packaged it, and sold it door-to-door or store-to-store. They loved popcorn, as do we. That's why we're in this business.
