The humble chickpea is now taking center stage for many people who are looking for a high quality and healthy snack to take with them each and every day. Green Park Brands CEO Livio Bisterzo has been looking for a new way of helping the people of the world to snack in a healthy and sustainable way for around seven years; after developing the Green Park Brands group Livio is now beginning to find success with his range of chickpea based snacks that include three grams of fiber and four grams of protein per serving.
In his work to develop a new range of healthy snacking options over recent years Livio Bisterzo has been searching for the best way of creating a vegan friendly, gluten free, and certified organic snacking option that is tasty and healthy; Livio is now heading the Hippeas brand that also states the products it has created are Kosher and non-GMO to make sure as many people as possible have the chance to enjoy these 100 calories per pack range of snacks.
Livio Bisterzo (@liviobisterzo) understands the need to make healthy snacks as enticing and flavorful as possible to attract customers to the Hippeas brand that has recently been accepted into the Starbucks family of products; to this end Livio and his team of developers have created a range of flavors that should be wide ranging enough to provide an option for almost any person, flavors include the imaginatively named “Far Out Fajita”, “Pepper Power”, “Maple Haze”, and “Vegan White Cheddar” in its current six flavor range.
The work of Hippeas and Green Park Brands is not limited to simply developing a new range of products that will be popular with those seeking a healthy option, but the company under the leadership of Livio Bisterzo is also hoping to change the lives of millions of people in Eastern Africa through its own success.
Hippeas will be stocked in more than 7,500 Starbucks locations and for every pack sold Green Park Brands will give back to the chickpea farmers of East Africa by donating a portion of its own profits to the Farm Africa charity. The lofty aims of Farm Africa include bringing an end to hunger in Eastern Africa and create a new era of wealth and prosperity for the farmers of this region of the world.
