We were 2 kids fresh out of university looking to do something that made people ' s lives just a little bit better.
Victor grew up between Ontario and the South of France and always dreamed of bringing the best parts of the Mediterranean food culture to Canada.
Aaron grew up near Toronto and was obsessed with experimenting in the kitchen to make healthier, higher protein versions of his favourite snacks.
In 2018, we decided to go on an adventure in the heart of the Mediterranean. After 12 days traversing the mountains of Corsica on the GR20 trail, we visited a street market in the South of France. Victor introduced Aaron to a traditional snack enjoyed in the Mediterranean for centuries: a delicious woodfired crepe made from chickpea flour called "Socca ".
We agreed we had to bring it to Canada and decided to quit our jobs to transform this chickpea snack into a delicious chip. We spent a year experimenting with hundreds of dierent recipes, process methods, and taste tests. We sold the chips at farmers markets in Toronto to get feedback as we perfected the recipe.
Industry veterans told us that we couldn 't make chips out of chickpeas without adding rice, corn, or potatoes, so we decided to open our own manufacturing plant to make them our way.
Peacasa: the original chickpea chip. A deliciously light and crispy chip packed with protein and rich in fibre. Join the adventure to make chickpeas into the best snacks in North America.
