Serial entrepreneur Livio Bisterzo, whose initial venture took place almost fifteen years ago, is now leading the way with an innovative food and drink company in the health and wellness sector.
Livio Bisterzo, the Founder and Chief Executive Officer of Green Park Brands, made use of his 7 years industry expertise in the health food industry to introduce the company’s first brand, Hippeas, a new range of organic chickpea puffs. His intention is to create multi-channel food and drinks brands.
Green Park Brands produces, develops and invests in a new generation of snacks that will be healthier and better for consumers.
The Green Park Holdings started with chick pea as the major ingredient in its mission to change snacking “one chickpea at a time.” The food product is organic, gluten free, vegan with more than 3 gm of fiber and 4 gm of protein.
Consumers can choose Hippeas in six flavors that range from pepper power and maple haze to vegan white cheddar and sriracha sunshine.
The company recently announced a new equity investment by backers that include Strand Equity Partners, co-founded by Seth Rodsky and Leonardo DiCaprio. And for every package sold, the company will support farmers in eastern Africa.
What’s more, Hippeas is the latest newcomer to Starbucks’ group of grab-and-go-snacks.
Livio Bisterzo got his start in the entrepreneurial arena while attending college where he launched his first venture that involved work in youth culture, marketing and events.
He went on to establish businesses across diverse industries that range from hospitality ventures such as the Maddox Club and Pollen St and consumer brands that include Kyoku for Men and Little Miracles to other lifestyle businesses such as the Alvaro Group in the world of art.
An Italian immigrant Livio Bisterzo moved to the UK in 1999 to earn his Bachelors Degree at the University of Arts London. Last year Bisterzo, who is married with three children, relocated to Los Angeles.
Livio Bisterzo has a passion for food, healthy living, team-building and sport.
