Founded in 2010 by Joseph Sopher, his wife and sons, Joe & Seph’s popcorn is handmade at their kitchens in London by a team of pastry chefs, who ‘air-pop’ the kernels and use only natural ingredients.
The range now comprises over 50 innovative flavours, from Chilli Chocolate and Salted Caramel, to Cheese on Toast and Gin & Tonic, earning the business more than 40 Great Taste awards.
BGF invested in our family business in early 2019 to help develop our new Popcorn HQ – a new head office, production kitchens and a warehouse in North London – that will enable our company’s growth over the coming years. This is a huge change for our business that historically was spread across 3 locations.
We see BGF as a long term partner and are excited to have their support on our journey as we continue to grow to be the leading premium, branded popcorn across the world.Adam Sopher, Co-founder
