The Cornella Story
It is our belief that India has the potential to grow popcorn which can compete with imported popcorn in terms of quality and quantity. With this objective Venagro Nutrifoods and its sister concern Sriven Marketing was established. The popcorn available in many theatres in the country is produced and processed by Venagro.

Cornella was founded with the idea of making this quality product not just a part of the theatre experience rather available to everyone to enjoy in their own homes. Hence the various flavours, all tuned to satisfy every taste-bud and fulfil any craving.

Popping corn available in the market today is largely imported from the Americas. In its earlier form Venagro started as a supplier and reseller of imported corn. It was at this time the idea germinated that of producing and processing corn within the country. This effort would not just reduce dependencies on imports; it would benefit farmers and add to the country’s economy.

In doing so Venagro faced its own challenges and realized the need to have a high quality seed as well as state-of-the-art machinery. Years of extensive research and development by its research arm, Sriven Marketing resulted in a perfect seed that not just provides higher yields but also ensures the quality of the end product is on par with international standards.

Venagro cultivates popcorn in 2000 acres of land and plans to expand to 5000 acres. The processing plant utilizes modern processing machinery which supports 10,000 metric tonnes of grain. This in a span of less than a decade. By making this product available to all we hope we can do our bit to provide healthier, better and tastier snack foods that all can benefit from.

'This product proudly claims to be made in India.'

The Popcorn Story
Popcorn, a snack loved and enjoyed by almost everyone today was first eaten more than five thousand years ago. Although American Indians, Aztecs have been credited for first using this seed in its popped form not just as food but for decorations as well as jewelry. Evidence suggests that popcorn was consumed in India hundreds of years before Columbus even sailed to America. In more recent times, popcorn not a regularly consumed cereal in India is definitely gaining importance as a snack food. The theatre experience is incomplete without the flavor of popcorn.

Recognized as a super-food and a perfect snack food, it is 100% unprocessed whole grain and one serving provides more than 70 percent of the daily intake of whole grain. It is naturally high in dietary fiber and antioxidants.

This super-snack is very versatile and has been used to create wonderful, exotic and even slightly weird dishes. It has been consumed for breakfast with milk and sugar, as dessert coated with marshmallows, nuts, caramel or the all-time favourite chocolate. It has been served as garnish for ice-cream and soup. And ofcourse as a snack in a variety of never ending savoury flavours.
