Angel Success Stories
“Chickapea has experienced exponential growth over the past couple of years. There’s no longer the question of whether a substantive market exists for nutritious, high-protein pasta, but rather how to keep up with the growth and demands of that market, and this funding will provide us with the resources we need to continue offering the highest quality, most nutritious and innovative products while living our values. District, InvestEco and EDC have been incredible partners and it’s exciting to continue growing with their support.”
