From the Popcorn Board: Industry Facts

“Americans consume 15 billion quarts of popped popcorn annually or 45 quarts per man, woman, and child. It is one of the most wholesome and economical foods available.

 “According to The Popcorn Institute, approximately 70 percent is eaten in the home (home popped and pre-popped) and about 30 percent outside the home (theaters, stadiums, schools, etc.). Unpopped popcorn accounts for approximately 90 percent of sales for home consumption.

“Major popcorn producing states are Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Michigan, Missouri, Nebraska and Ohio.”
