Rory Cullinan, his wife and young family moved up to live on the Sunshine Coast from Brisbane in 2008.
In 2013 they started M.A.D (Make A Difference) Popcorn in Woombye and began selling it at Eumundi Markets as a social business enterprise.
Their aim was to create a viable small business and raise funds for a local charity. In April this year they introduced a new line to retail with the creation of the scrumptious Popcorn Lovers brand.
The majority of the ingredients are from Queensland. All the corn is grown in Kingaroy & the sugar is from Bundaberg, while the bases used are made overseas. Popcorn Lovers popcorn is gluten free. No additives or preservative options are also available.
Popcorn Lovers popcorn has a shelf life of four months thanks to a prevention barrier sheen on the packaging preventing oxygen transpiration and sugar’s natural preservative qualities. Popcorn Lovers Popcorn comes in eight delicious flavours.
Caramel, a blend of dark sugars and the most popular. Salted Caramel, introduced recently is the current flavour trend. Cappuccino, a caramel base with coffee running through it. Traditional Butterscotch. Coconut, coconut bound into a butterscotch base. Choc Caramel, chocolate glaze and caramel. Macadamia, crushed local macadamia’s on a butterscotch base. Rocky Road, a mix of chocolate, butterscotch, coconut and strawberry.
