July 23, 2020, Brooklyn, N.Y. – Pipcorn, the minority-owned, better-for-you heirloom snacking brand, is expanding its North American presence by entering retailer locations in Canada.
The company’s snacking staples, Heirloom Popcorn and Heirloom Cheese Balls, will be available at Loblaws Natural Value stores this month and continue to roll out to additional retailers throughout the year.
“We are so excited to introduce Pipcorn to our neighbours up north, bringing our sustainable snacking favorites to more people,” said Teresa Tsou, co-founder of Pipcorn. “Starting with our popcorn and cheese balls, this expansion creates a jumping-off point for Canadians looking for options that are not only better for you but also doing great work to better the planet.”
Pipcorn uses heirloom corn as the base for all of its products to create sustainable, cleaner versions of classic snacks. Pipcorn Popcorn features mini-kernel corn that is delicate, won’t get stuck in your teeth and is easier to digest.
The Canadian offerings include the brand’s top sellers Truffle and Sea Salt Heirloom Popcorn, as well as Heirloom Cheese Balls’ top sellers Cheddar and Cheddar Jalapeno, both made with organic dairy.
The North American expansion comes at a time of impressive brand growth for Pipcorn, as the company’s DTC sales are up by 520 per cent year-to-date. The brand also launched its Heirloom Crackers to its American line, using the leftover corn flour from their cheese balls production, upcycling and deepening their sustainability mission.
