Serious Popcorn was launched in 2015 in Auckland, New Zealand by me, Roger Holmes.
Corn is in my blood. My great-grandfather Albert Pope planted the first corn crop on our family farm in the 1950’s. Oakdene Farms was passed down to my grand father Ben Holmes, and later to my father Mark Holmes.
I spent my childhood helping my father harvest corn on Oakdene Farms. But with an entrepreneurial spirit, an eye for design, and a passion for organic food, the idea for a contemporary take on corn was born.
Today, over half a century on, I’m continuing the family tradition with Serious Popcorn.
But this isn’t just any popcorn. It’s popcorn with a serious story. Check out The Sustainable Snacking Mission here.
