BOULDER, COLO. – Sustainability-focused bakery maker Quinn Snacks is relaunching its Pop-at-Home popcorn kernels with updated packaging and single-origin corn kernels from a farm that practices regenerative agriculture . Working with fifth-generation farmer Steve McKaskle of the McKaskle Family Farm in Braggadocio, Missouri, Quinn seeks to promote sustainable farming practices and provide consumers with full ingredient transparency.
“At Quinn, we have always believed that transparency is the most powerful force for good in the food system,” said Kristy Lewis, founder and visionary director of Quinn. “Partnering with the McKaskle family has given us the opportunity to share all about where and how our popcorn kernels are grown and packaged.”
Pop-at-Home kernels are packaged in 35% post-consumer recycled bags less than a quarter mile from the McKaskle family farm. The lightweight pouches offer about a 60% reduction in greenhouse gas emissions compared to the previous carton, according to the company.
“It was an honor to learn from Steve and his family while working on this new product,” said Grace Dennis, Quinn’s Sustainability and Sourcing Manager. “For nearly 30 years, the McKaskles have been dedicated to promoting soil health and continue to experiment with innovative approaches to regenerative agriculture.”
Available in 28 oz bags, Pop-at-Home Popcorn Kernels are sold on Quinn’s website.
