The chickpea is a legume that is simultaneously small and mighty. Hippeas provide a plant-powered snack that fuels you between meals, with protein, fiber and the comfort of knowing it’s good for you and the planet.
The History of Hippeas
In 2015, Hippeas founder Livio Bisterzo created Green Park Brands, based off of his passion for living a healthy lifestyle and his experience working in the natural food space. He wanted to combine a dual goal of manufacturing healthy options and creating products that had a positive social impact in the world.
Green Park Brands introduced Hippeas in 2016, and it made a splash. Suddenly, chickpeas were thrust into the mainstream and Hippeas had perfected the perfect crunch, bite and texture for its snack to appeal to the masses - while keeping it natural and healthy.
Hippeas Company Mission
Hippeas set out to make a snack that tastes good, feels good, and leaves no negative impact on the planet. With five flavors, all full of protein, fiber and free of dairy - Hippeas delivers.
Benefits of Hippeas
Hippeas saw the benefit of using chickpeas as a main ingredient in a snack product. Chickpeas release nitrogen back into the earth as they grow, which means they’re naturally giving back to the environment. It doesn’t end there - Hippeas is also dedicated to paying it forward.
Along with teaming up with local charities, Hippeas have a five-year project to invest in and develop a sustainable supply-chain in Ethiopia, creating a co-op that will be its main supply of chickpeas.

In Snacking We Trust
Grazing between meals, or opting for something to hold you over for the rest of the workday, doesn’t need to be a bad thing. Using your knowledge of what’s best for you and your body, here are some snacking suggestions to fuel your busy schedule.
Snacking doesn’t need to be a bad habit when you’re making conscious decisions of what you’re eating. With the paleo diet, you’ll want to focus on food choices that will hold you over until mealtime. Avoiding dairy, grains, sugar - and getting as much protein as possible - means your snacks must bring the nutrients.
Keeping it Organic
The term organic refers to how farmers grow and process agricultural foods. If a product is organic, that means it is coming from farmers that opt to use natural resources to feed soil and plants and don’t use chemicals. If you’re looking to fill your snack drawer, learning more about what organic means - and why you should be selecting these products - can revolutionize how you stay full throughout the day.
