Scotland’s first and only gourmet popcorn company Poporopo celebrated their 1st Birthday on the 19th January. Based in Stirling, Poporopo create a range of luxury caramel coated popcorn infused with a variety of creative flavours. To mark this milestone Poporopo have launched a Gin & Tonic caramel flavour collaborating with two highly celebrated unique and innovative Scottish producers. Arbikie Highland Estate using Kirsty’s Gin and Summerhouse Drinks using Walter Gregor’s Tonic Water.
In 2015 Poporopo won the STEP business of the Year Award and the BBC Good Food Show Bursary Award and 2016 has continued on the same course with two more nominations for The HEAT Pitching award and the Forth Valley Chamber of Commerce Best Start Up Business Award. Founder Daman Bush says “2015 was an incredible year full of ups and downs, it all feels worthwhile when we receive recognition from 3rd parties by shortlisting us for awards. 2016 is going to be a big year for us, increasing our high street presence and partnering up with more small businesses to bring truly unique products to the shelves”
In their first year Poporopo have secured partnerships with high profile customers such as Historic Scotland, and Caledonian Sleeper and their delicious range of gourmet popcorn can now be purchased at close to 100 independent retailers. A new year also welcomes a new look for Poporopo. Their new logo and website gives the company a new, cleaner look, more suited to their place in the market.
