Livio Bisterzo Takes Snacks to a New Level

Say hello to the newest craze in healthy snacks: the chickpea puff. Hippeas are good for you, allergy friendly, and, most of all, delicious! These delightful snacks come in tons of fun flavors like “Far Out Fajita,” “Sweet and Smokin’,” “In Herbs We Trust,” “Vegan White Cheddar,” and “Pepper Power.” Unlike many snacks you can grab on the run, Hippeas are gluten-free, vegan, organic, non-GMO, and kosher. They do not additives, preservatives, or MSG, so you can feel good about eating Hippeas over other snack foods. Plus they contain just 100 calories per package but have 3 grams of protein and lots of fiber!

Not only are Hippeas good for your body, they also support positive change in the world. The brand supports a charity called Farm Africa. This cause helps chickpea farmers in Sub-Saharan Africa learn to use more productive and pioneering farming practices to get themselves and their communities out of poverty. Chickpea plants also naturally release nitrogen into the soil as the grow, enriching the earth for other plants. This snack tastes great and does good for the environment and the world.

Livio Bisterzo, founder and CEO of Green Park Brands, is an entrepreneur with a passion for food. After seven years in the health food industry, he created Hippeas as the perfect healthy snack: it looks and tastes like other snacks on the store shelves but is much better for you and for the environment. It is designed “for the health and socially conscious consumer.” Livio Bisterzo says that he wanted a snack that was “culturally relevant” and that after testing and reading thousands of comments from customers, he knew Hippeas was what the people wanted. Though Hippeas are free of many common allergens and fit with most dietary restrictions, Bisterzo says that he wanted to create a simply delicious snack and that meeting health needs is just a bonus.

Single-serving bags of Hippeas are available on their website as well as the websites of many natural and health food retailers. You can also pick up the “Vegan White Cheddar” and “Far Out Fajita” flavors alongside other grab and go snacks at your local Starbucks store.

New Options from the OSI Group

As a food service provider for many different restaurants in the world, The OSI Group has been able to help many different people with the options that they have available. They have many different things including fresh and frozen food for the restaurants that they serve around the world. This has allowed OSI Group to be one of the most successful food companies in the food service industry because of the way that they treat their clients and everyone else who is in the industry and who has been able to get what they need from the OSI Group.

Since they started out as one of the most influential fresh food markets available, they were able to offer people different things. This was something that allowed them to grow to different points. They started out as only a fresh meat market in the Pacific Northwest and this allowed them to improve upon their business model. They made sure that their clients were able to come there and to get what they need from the different things that they had to offer. It gave them a chance to provide their clients with the different options in the food market. They then moved from the market to a different type of food business setup.


Now that they have been successful with fresh food, they have also branched out into prepared meals. Not only do they offer things like raw chicken and fresh vegetables but they also offer prepared meals as well as desserts and even products that restaurants are not able to get anywhere else. This has allowed the OSI Group to set themselves apart from many of the other food service providers who are a part of the same food service industry. They have been extremely successful with what they offer their clients.

While they did start out in the United States, this is not the only place that they are able to serve their clients in. OSI Group now has clients around the world and they are a global food service provider. This means that they can work with most countries around the world to ensure that they are getting the food that they need in their own restaurants. It has allowed them to be as successful as possible and has offered them the chance to branch out to even more markets than what they had originally worked for.

They have been so successful that they are constantly rolling out new options for their clients. They want them to be able to get exactly what they need and this has allowed them the chance to show off what they have for their clients. There are many options that have been included in their new products. They plant to continue this level of huge success. While they have been great at what they do, they want to be even better when they are working towards even more new and exciting goals in the food service industry and with the restaurants that they provide their services to.
