Popping Export Sales for New Jersey Supplier

by Food Export | Jul 07, 2016
Growing up in the Midwest, popping corn was bought from local farmers by Christine Myers, President of Madison Park Foods. After moving East, that same quality popcorn could not be found anywhere. A few years ago, Myers finally located the family farmer who grew this unique heirloom popcorn and decided it was too healthy and delicious to keep to herself. Her husband used his background in the spice trade to formulate seasonings to make this all American Snack extraordinary, and Madison Park Foods was born.

In November of 2014, Madison Park Foods located in Brookside, New Jersey in the 11th Congressional District, attended Food Export’s Buyers Mission in Philadelphia, PA, where they met buyers from Canada, Czech Republic, Brazil, Hong Kong, England, Turkey, and South Africa. After meeting with the buyers’, strong interest was gained from the Canadian and Turkey buyers and Madison Park Foods was able to report projected sales for the next twelve months to Canada of $31,000 and $20,000 to Turkey, with additional potential in Thailand and Germany from this year’s Summer Fancy Food Show. 

Madison Park Foods is a supplier of All Natural, Non-GMO, Gluten and Allergen free popping seeds and unique seasonings. For more information on this company and to see all their products visit their website at: Madison Park Foods Product Image
