Popping Export Sales for New Jersey Supplier

by Food Export | Jan 18, 2017
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. Myers’ 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 June of 2016, Madison Park Foods attended Food Export’s Specialty Foods Buyers mission at the Summer Fancy Food Show where they met buyers from Ireland, Canada and the UK. After meeting with the buyers’, strong interest was gained from the Canadian and UK buyers and this Brookside, New Jersey supplier was able to project sales of $25,000.

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