Founders Bjorn Quenemoen and Jamie O'Shea came together in one of the tastiest, nutritional yeast-iest collaborations in popcorn history. Bjorn is a Minnesota corn farmer's son and Jamie is an artist and inventor. The two met at Bard College, where Bjorn became known for his delicious family popcorn recipe and Jamie for his wild concepts and contraptions.
During a historic session of catch in Central Park, their collaboration was set into motion and Bjorn Qorn was born. They perfected their recipe using the heat of the sun, first at their Kelder’s farm location using enormous mirrored reflectors to collect the sun’s rays and focus them on their kettles. Now, they also have a solar-electric facility where they continue to pop out their original savory recipe and develop new products. Bjorn Qorn values being transparent with their ingredients, being GMO free, and strives to be zero-waste wherever possible.
