    Plant-based food company releases three flavors of the good for you snack at Expo East 2019 including Himalayan Salt, Pico de Gallo and Mediterranean Herbs.

    AUSTIN, Texas – September 12, 2019 – Kibo Foods, an Austin-based company finding new and delicious ways to utilize nutrition-packed ingredients, today announced the official launch of its new plant-based Chickpea Chips. The Kibo Chickpea Chips will debut at Expo East 2019 in Baltimore, MD and the company will offer three delicious flavors – Himalayan Salt, Pico de Gallo and Mediterranean Herbs.

    With the release of these first three flavors of Kibo Chickpea Chips, the company is delivering on its mission to create nutritious food that tastes incredible, while still contributing to a better food future and taking care of  the planet. Because the Kibo Chickpea Chips are made from plant-based sources, they use less water to produce than animal-based foods. Kibo Foods also has self-imposed nutritional guidelines including a commitment  to only launching products that are a good or excellent source of nutrients. Each serving of the Chickpea Chips has a nutritious 7g of protein and 3g of fiber, both a “Good Source” as outlined by the Food and Drug Administration.

    “It’s not easy or quick to create products that meet the nutritional standards we lay out for ourselves, but we know it’s worth it,” said Rafael Henao, CEO of Kibo Foods. “We want to make simple, delicious and nutritious food accessible to everyone. People love these flavors and we can’t wait to get more feedback at Expo East to keep improving and working towards future products.”

    Expo East attendees are invited to stop by booth #2214 to try the new Kibo Chickpea Chips. Although the Chickpea Chips will officially launch at the show, they will be available nationwide for purchase on Amazon in late September. Kibo Foods will initially focus its brick-and-mortar distribution efforts in the Austin, Texas market with the ambition to grow into additional cities in 2020.
