*Crispeas sale of production line options.
Posted on Friday, November 25, 2016

Crispeas are a new snack food made from premium grade green peas. Snack foods like Crispeas have been a big seller in Asia for many years and are now finally available in North America. This snack food is amazingly healthy combined with great taste. Well balanced protein to carbohydrate ratio, high in dietary fiber and low in fat. We have developed recipes for five different flavours, salted, hot bbq, wasabi, ranch and dill pickle. Today we are pleased to offer for sale a business opportunity, for an entrepreneurial mind, our knowledge, recipes, production equipment and HACCP Plan for this wonderful Snack Food we developed. We found that we as a busy exporter of raw material just don’t have the time to concentrate on bringing this product to the consumer. We do feel we have developed an excellent alternative snack that deserves to be introduced to the consumer in a wider spectrum.

Our product has won the 2013 AFPA award for the best value added Snack Food with the Wasabi Crispeas.

We are entertaining two options for the sale of the production line for Crispeas®

A)Sell off the idea including recipes, equipment etc. for someone to manufacture and market on a large scale. B)Sell the manufacturing line, recipes at cost for someone to market and pay royalties on each kg sold to Columbia Seed Co. Ltd.

Any interested party may contact us through email @, or call us @ 1-877-577-2158 ==
