Livio Bisterzo, CEO of Green Park Holdings, thinks that his company has created the next great healthy snack. This product is called Hippeas and he thinks that it will have a global impact on the snack food world. This is because the company is committed to bringing customers affordable healthy snack foods that also taste good. Hippeas does all this while also being socially conscious, too. He created the snack food in conjunction with his company to fill a void that he saw as an entrepreneur. That void was health and nutrition sector of the snack food world.
What are Hippeas?
Hippeas are puffed chickpea snack that comes in multiple flavors. Health-conscious consumers love the snack because it is vegan, gluten-free, and even kosher. It can fit into just about any diet. Chickpeas are very popular amongst vegans because they provide a lot of nutritional value, are very versatile as a food item, and taste good when used correctly. Many are surprised that while Hippeas only contain 100 calories per serving, they also provide the consumer with over 3 grams of protein. They are also very easy to eat when on the go. Most healthy eaters are also pretty active.
Starbuck’s has noticed what is so great about these snacks. This is why the retail giant has ordered the snack food to be sold in over 7,500 stores in the United States. The snack product fills a huge void for the company. They are always looking for ways to improve their selection when it comes to grab-and-go snacks that are also healthy. This snack product fits that bill perfectly.
Hippeas are the brainchild of the Green Park Holdings CEO, Livio Bisterzo. Bisterzo is an Italian entrepreneur that made his way to Los Angeles via his education in London England. He helped create Hippeas to fill a void he saw in the food world when it came to premium health food. This snack has only been on the market for a couple months and it is already looking like it is going to take the snack world by storm.
A huge order from the biggest coffee retailer in the United States is only going to further that reputation. Add in the fact that company is socially conscious too and it makes the snack even more appealing. A portion of the proceeds from the sale of each bag of Hippeas goes back to help chickpea farmers in poor parts of Africa.
