How Livio Bisterzo is Changing the Snack World In More Ways Than One

If you haven’t tried Hippeas Organic Chickpea Puffs, then you’re missing out on a great addition to a healthy snacking diet, and more importantly, a snack that gives back to the community and the environment on Twitter. This 100 calorie, fiber- and protein-packed snack foods are produced from chickpeas grown by the Farm Africa Charity in Sub-Saharan Africa. Community owned farms are able to generate needed income for villagers to support their families, and because chickpeas release nitrogen into the atmosphere, which contributes to soil fertility, they are an eco-friendly crop. Hippeas is an organic, and totally vegan snack, that is available in a range of delicious flavors, like Sriracha Sunrise, Maple Haze, and Vegan White Cheddar, making the perfect addition to children’s lunch boxes or that afternoon snack at work.

The brand ‘Hippeas’, (a homonym of the word ‘hippies’), was purposely selected to signify its own social conscience direction. World issues, such as poverty, climate change, carbon footprint, and economic development, are central to the core mission of this snack food producer. Founded by Livio Bisterzo, an innovator in the food and beverage industry, he has maintained a steady focus on building consumer brands that have a meaningful purpose in improving the lives of growers and consumers. Interestingly, Mr. Bisterzo has managed to partner the serious side of the food industry with a lighthearted, even humorous snack – as the puffed chickpeas are shaped in that iconic 60’s smiley face grin.

Not surprising, Hippeas’ originality, its ‘good for you’ ingredients, and their sustainable environment platform caught the eye of Starbucks. They have included the gluten-free snack as a grab-and-go option on the company’s distinctive menu. Yet, Livio Bisterzo isn’t surprised at all, having worked hard for over seven years in the natural food industry, he realized the growing international trend towards eating well while sustaining the environment, is not simply a fad, but a new way of living well and aging well.

While having a successful snack product on the market is a worthwhile venture, Livio Bisterzo takes a much greater pride in the social mission that gives back to eastern African communities. This part of the Africa must support 218 million citizens living in rural poverty and operates in an agricultural deficit. Closing the income gap is made possible by private industries helping to transition third world economies that have been curtailed by outdated colonial political systems and internal warfare. And it is for these reasons that all Americans should support brands such as Hippeas; helping to change the snack world in more ways than one.

Philip Diehl recently did an interview with Eric Dye the Entrepreneurial Podcast Network Enterprise Radio. This particular radio program helps U.S. and international based entrepreneurs to be successful in their endeavors. During the interview Diehl provides lots of useful advice and information who are building their businesses.

Philip Diehl is a US Money Reserve President and he is also a former U.S. Mint Director. His many years of experience has helped him to do some great things while he was in charge of the Money Reserve. He had helped to establish the 50 States Quarter Program and he had also help to mint the first government-issued platinum coin.

Dye had asked Diehl about some of the things that he did while he led the US Money Reserve and the U.S. Mint. Diehl responded by saying that he and his organization improved the customer service of the U.S. Mint. This was a very important step to take because it helped the U.S. Mint to become a stronger player in the financial market and it helped to attract top notch clients.

By the way, the U.S. Money Reserve is one of the America’s largest distributors of precious metal bullion. People can buy precious metals from this organization and not just for retirement purposes. Diehl’s commitment to this organization is helping it to grow by leaps and bounds.

Internet Reputation Repair Can Save A Company


Anyone involved in business will have found themselves discussing what’s important for a company. It’s readily apparent that everyone wants to know what will help business. But it’s often easier to see what can help a business by first looking at what can hurt it. A recent example of this can be seen with United Airline. The company has been a household name for quite some time. It might seem to be a company which could survive anything. But it recently suffered severe losses simply due to mismanagement of a customer’s guitar. This was further compounded by the fact that they were less than attentive in listening to his demands for compensation. This might not seem like a big deal at first. But what made the difference is the fact that this customer was a noted musician. And a noted musician will of course have a built in audience ready to hear any complaints. He wrote a song all about the events which quickly caught on. And United Airline suffered an estimated $180 million in financial losses as a result.

The reason all comes down to online reputation management. When a company suffers from negative press or even just a negative reputation than sales will always go down tremendously. A company like United Airline might have enough capital to weather the effects. But one can only imagine if a company that had less money to work with had suffered similar negative attention. But again, what a company does wrong can also highlight what a company might do right. A recent study from Harvard looked at the effects of even moderate internet reputation repair. They used the online review site Yelp as the base of the study. The researchers looked at how even a modest increase of one star would impact business. They were able to note that a restaurant would receive a five to nine percent overall increase in business as a result of online reputation repair services.

The reason why this is so important is that reputation can be changed. For example, a company called The Search Fixers specializes in modifying online reputation for their clients. A client will typically sign up due to issues with their online representation. A classic example would be negative results appearing in a search engine. The Search Fixers would come in, and as the name suggests they would fix bad search results. This would involve ensuring that positive instead of negative results come up. By doing so they’re able to secure the positive results of a good online reputation for their clients.
