COMPANY OVERVIEW

Weaver Popcorn was founded in 1928 by Ira Weaver. Today, Pop Weaver is still based in Indiana and has become a leading brand of microwave popcorn. Our products can be found throughout the United States and in more than 90 other countries worldwide.

It's our daily dedication to excellence that has driven us to create one of the healthiest microwave popcorns in the world, with richer, buttery flavor than ever before.
