Livio Bisterzo
CEO and Founder
Hippeas

I started my first entrepreneurial venture in college working in youth culture, marketing and events. Since then, I went on to challenge myself across different industries creating some great brands and at times, failing miserably.

In 2015 I founded Green Park Holdings. Our objective is to build a portfolio of brands with a clear focus on "better for you" natural propositions, operating brands that have lasting social impact and prompt behavioral and cultural change. Our vision is to lead the agenda for positive change in the food and drink industry.

In 2016 we launched our first brand HIPPEAS™, a range of Organic Chickpea Puffs embarking on a mission to shake things up. HIPPEAS is calling all snackers to #GivePeasAChance while also doing good in the world.

Light and crunchy with a serious punch of protein and fiber, HIPPEAS are low-calorie, certified organic, gluten-free, vegan, kosher, allergen free and non-GMO. Chickpea plants release nitrogen back into the earth so they’re naturally good for the planet and for each pack sold, HIPPEAS will donate a portion of sales to Farm Africa in support of farmers in eastern Africa – helping them build towards a better future.
