Packaging upgrade for popcorn maker
A gourmet popcorn business has upgraded its packaging to preserve the freshness of its product for longer.
The business, Paddled Popped Popcorn was founded by Malachi Symonds and launched in 2015.
The popcorn is made in a custom-made kettle, in which paddle popping ensures that the corn is raised to the precise temperature at which it pops to the biggest possible size, with a fluffy texture and bold flavour.
The popcorn is made in a big pot, heated with propane gas.
Tamara Sukdeo, general manager of the business, said new aluminium-sealed bags had improved the shelf life and flavour of the product.
“The bags will keep the popcorn fresh for up to 90 days,” Ms Sukdeo said. “And we are now celebrating the number of people that assisted in the creation of the logo, the design of the bag and the popping and bagging of the corn.”
The business has also updated its logo since launching.
Ms Sukdeo said: “The logo was originally designed by renowned Bermudian artist Katherine Summerville. It was modified to the now commonly used logo by cartoonist Anthony Cannonier.
“Anthony is an amazing cartoonist and assisted the telling of the story by animating the characters. The design of the bag was completed by Cushi Ming, who is a local graphic artist.”
Paddled Popped Popcorn is now available at Brown & Co, Peoples Pharmacy and Belvin’s Groceries.
