Welcome to POP Mama POP! My name is Kathleen Hackett and I love making popcorn. I think it’s the ultimate fun and the ultimate comfort food. What’s better than a big bowl of fresh hot organic popcorn flavored just right that you share with your kids, your spouse, and your friends while relaxing on your comfortable sofa? Since I start with the farmer growing my popcorn and take the process all the way through to the compostable packaging myself, I say it goes from farm to couch!
POP Mama POP! got it’s name from my son. When he was little standing behind the corn in the garden he yelled out, “Pop, Mama. Pop!” That was five years ago and both he and the company have grown up quite a bit.
I want to produce a better product that helps make a better world. I work directly with the farmers that grow my corn to make sure they use an all organic process in growing my corn. I pop the kernels in corn oil which is low in saturated fat and soon I’ll be using sunflower oil for the healthiest popcorn available. I flavor each batch only with whole ingredients you can find in your own cupboards – no chemicals or artificial flavors. I package the popcorn in earth-friendly bio-degradable bags so that we’re not adding to the volume of the landfills. In the near future, my labels will be made of hemp so they are sustainable and degradable! It’s my passion to make our popcorn (and it’s packaging) as healthy, delicious and low impact as possible for our bodies and our planet.
That’s our mission and our passion at POP Mama POP!
