Popcorn has already been announced as the featured product of the 2013 state fair and the Weaver Popcorn Company of Noblesville has stepped up to become the fair's presenting sponsor. The family-owned company was founded by Rev. Ira Weaver in 1928 and is the global leader in popcorn production with sales throughout the United States and to more than 90 other countries worldwide. Weaver works with farmers throughout Indiana and the Midwest to grow its own popcorn and then packages it into a range of products, including movie theater popcorn, microwave popcorn, and caramel corn at its manufacturing facility in Van Buren. In fact, Weaver is the largest manufacturer of microwave popcorn and its Pop Weaver brand is the market leader in retailers like Walmart.
