This June we are welcoming a brand new team member! Here at Portlebay our marketing team is doubling up with new girl Iona- A.K.A mini Millie.
-Iona is passionate about the classic and simple things in life- pretty flowers, summer evenings and of course Lightly Sea Salted popcorn.
-As well as this Iona is a lover of sport; regularly playing Lacrosse, enjoying the gym and best of all going for runs with her dog Alfie! She can often be spotted in her natural habitat which is any of the South-West’s beautiful beaches, which is just one of the reasons she loves Devon so much.
-This beach admiration is down to her love of adventure, but watch out! Iona is known to get carried away with her exploring and has been stuck up trees, stranded on rocks and even lost in a Cambodian jungle!
Her adventurous personality was passed down to her from her parents who named her after an island in Scotland due to their love of traveling and Scottish heritage. One day Iona would love to travel the world, but right now, shes most excited for her new venture right here at Portlebay.
Our Portlebay team is a small and passionate group of individuals that adore popcorn and all things to do with the beach, outdoors and anything that will make us giggle! This is certainly accurate for our most jolly team member, Bob, our mighty mascot!
If you haven’t yet had the pleasure of meeting this cheeky chap, then say ‘hello’ to Bob the seagull! Along with his knobbly knees and beak full of popcorn, you may notice his very stylish American themed sailor hat. This quirky little addition represents the dawn of Portlebay Popcorn, when our wonderful Chief Pop-Meisters went on a great adventure to America and found their inspiration to start hand-popping delicious popcorn in Sunny little Devon.
