Norfolk County staff made another wonderful business visit with colleagues at Ontario Popping Corn Co., recent recipient of the prestigious Premier’s award for Agri-Food Innovation of Excellence. Established in 1985 they began supplying a few stores in the local area. Today they export their products to the UK, Israel, Hong Kong and Japan. Ontario Popping Corn has also been working with a number of other companies to move their products across Canada.
With a focus on quality the company has invested in a state-of-the-art optical colour sorter which scans every single kernel of corn before it heads out the door. Ontario Popping corn is Local Food Plus certified, have Foodland Ontario recognition and certified Non-GMO.
Kudos to Ontario Popping Corn for being an important part of Norfolk County agriculture and innovation.
