CAMBRIDGE, Ont., June 13, 2024 — From Farm to Table Canada, an Ontario-based snack-food company, is thrilled to announce a new collaboration with the Canadian National Exhibition (CNE) for the 2024 season. The partnership introduces an exclusive, limited-edition CNE kettle corn, crafted to capture the essence of the CNE’s vibrant festivities and nostalgic charm. Available from June 15 through Labour Day at major grocery retailers, independents and food-service markets across Ontario, this delightful treat is poised to become the must-have snack of the summer.

Renowned for its popcorn and kettle chips, From Farm to Table Canada is proudly Ontario-made and woman-owned. Its products are sold online (, as well as in retail chains, including Sobeys, Foodland, and Freshco, and in many independent stores. The company also supplies snacks for schools, sports teams, non-profits, daycares, and other organizations.

“We are incredibly excited to partner with the CNE,” said Becky Smollett, President of From Farm to Table Canada. “Our team has crafted this exclusive CNE kettle corn with a sprinkle of nostalgia and a lot of care, aiming to remind everyone of the good feelings associated with the CNE. This collaboration captures the spirit of family, fun, and the time-honoured tradition of sharing delightful snacks.”

The limited-edition CNE kettle corn is packaged in an artfully illustrated bag by artist Susan Kao that captures the fun of the CNE and is available in two sizes: a Family Bag (125 g) for $4.99 and a Grab & Go size (25 g) for $1.79. Made from Ontario-grown corn and hand-crafted in small batches, this product offers a perfect blend of sweet and salty flavours, with a lot of crunch! The collaboration with the CNE aims to delight customers with an old-fashioned kettle corn typically offered at fall fairs across Ontario, celebrating local ingredients and cherished traditions with family and friends.
