Here are just some of the reasons why Hippeas continues to be picked up by popular retailers such as Whole Foods, Starbucks and Amazon.
For years, consumers have settled for packaged snacks that had little nutritive value and were full of chemicals that were used to trick the taste buds. A new generation of snack consumers are armed with dietary information that makes them a lot more discriminating about what they choose to put in their mouths. They want snack products that are made from clean, natural ingredients which have not been genetically modified. These snacks must also be flavorful. The snack-making geniuses behind Hippeas simply gave them what they wanted, and many consumers attest that the snack exceeds their expectations.
Hippeas Helps to End the Perpetual Cycle of Poverty in East Africa
Hippeas has partnered with Farm Africa, a non-profit charity, to help chickpea farmers in East Africa. A percentage of the sales from each Hippeas snack pack goes to offer these farmers a helping hand up that creates lasting positive change. Under the right circumstances, the Farm Africa charity recipients of today could become prime suppliers of chickpeas for Hippeas snacks tomorrow.
Choosing the chickpea as the base of Hippeas snack products was no accident. The adaptable legume was primarily selected for its ability to masterfully convey different flavors and a crunchy texture after proper processing. However, growing chickpeas is also a sustainable farming practice that actually puts nitrogen, which is a natural fertilizer, back into the soil. Chickpea crops require less water for production than many other competing grain and vegetable crops as well.
