Get it while it’s hot, they say, and what’s very hot right now is Corndale Popcorn. The much-loved market staple of slightly sweet, lightly salted corn is cooked in the old-style kettle method, but has expanded to a new food-grade facility here in our very own Byron Arts and Industry Estate.

Not only that, but they are also offering food establishments in and around Byron Bay such as restaurants, breweries, pubs and coffee shops a delivery service of Daily Fresh Popped Popcorn for serving to their patrons the same day. Getting it while it’s hot can also apply to business opportunities, and according to Richard Higgs, who runs the business started by his father at the local markets, they are looking right now for new distributors for their new products – if this is your thing then contact him on 0456 882 743 or email [email protected]

Of course, they are still at the various markets around northern NSW, where they have quite a cult following of popcorn lovers who travel from far and wide to try the treats (well healthy treats) at the markets.

‘It’s a great snack,’ says Richard. ‘It’s vegan and dairy free and nut free and soy free. It’s GMO free, all natural without any colours or flavours. We have Traditional (slightly sweet and lightly salted), Simply Salt, Maple, Cinnamon, Wild Honey, Cajun, Caramel, and there’s also an eighth flavour, Organic (that might not sound like a flavour, but it’s sweet and salty and every flavour element is organic).’

It’s always good to see local products doing well, and visitors to Byron and the surrounding region are always interested in what we are making here. If you haven’t tried it, or haven’t been to the markets for a while, you can check out their stall at the Byron Surf Fest in Byron Feb 20–24 or at Eat the Street in Lismore March 9.
