It can be a struggle for vegans to find food that fits within the description of their diet and even more so to find it within a low cost budget. However, Livio Bisterzo has made that issue a bit easier for all the vegans out there.
Introducing HIPPEAS in 2016 from his food company Green Park Holdings, Bisterzo has changed the game in the health industry by providing a healthy affordable chickpea puff snack brand. It is low in calories but high in fiber and protein with the additional benefits of being organic, gluten-free, non-GMO and kosher.
To show support for this brand, Academy Award winner Leonardo DiCaprio has invested an undisclosed amount to HIPPEAS’ parent company Green Park. The film producer and activist has decided to use his financial resources to show his endorsement for a company that is producing Earth friendly brands. DiCaprio himself is the founder of an organization himself that focuses on climate change solutions, biodiversity and habitat conservation.
Snack fans across America are rejoicing that these healthy snacks are available in so many places like Starbucks, Amazon and Whole Foods. At $1.95 for an ounce in Starbucks, HIPPEAS is a brand that is projected to bring in far more profit for their premium prices and is projected to generate millions in wholesale for the year. It is also being sold in the United Kingdom where they have an office.
As a young entrepreneur, Bisterzo is glad that his company’s goal to provide better nutrition is being manifest so early in HIPPEAS. The founder and Chief Executive admits that it was his experience in the launching of two other consumer brands – Kyoku, a men’s grooming brand, and Little Miracles, a maker of tea drinks – that gave him the knowledge to push his own brand out on the market so quickly.
With the investment from an environmental activist, HIPPEAS will definitely gain attention for its connection with the actor. Their tasty snacks are an added bonus that should keep the brand name at the edge of the current snack trend in this very competitive field.
