While the credo “everything in moderation” eases the guilt when we find ourselves indulging there’s now a plant-based alternative: Hippie Snacks, available at select Thrifty Foods and IGA stores across Canada.
They’re all plant-based and a good source of protein, non-GMO and gluten-free
The brand had a smash success with its grain-free granolas and coconut chips, before hitting it even bigger with their line of Crisps – made with cauliflower, almond and avocado. Their secret is to let real foods be the stars of the show, using healthy ingredients and minimal processing.
In addition to producing fantastic snacks, Hippie Snacks operates as environmentally friendly as possible, an approach that is evident throughout the company. When it comes to manufacturing, Hippie Snacks has a low environmental footprint with reduced waste and energy consumption, minimal packaging, and choosing raw ingredient suppliers who champion similar environmental practices. With sustainability at the core of all decision-making at Hippie Snacks, the Hippie Snacks development team evaluate not only the company’s greenhouse gas emissions on a regular basis, but also the environmental factors like water usage, soil retention and habitat safety – analysing the entire supply chain.
They’re all plant-based and a good source of protein, non-GMO and gluten-free.
“Take for example our cauliflower crisps. We use the entire cauliflower, grinding the entire thing up. There is no [cauliflower] waste.”
We are conscious of our processes, from sourcing ingredients and upcycling, to manufacturing and distribution
