Vintage Italia Pasta Chips will debut new packaging with the Non-GMO (non genetically modified organisms) Project Verified Seal of Approval at the Fancy Food Show in San Francisco held Jan. 11-13, 2015. The bold and bright new packaging designs will be a shelf-standout in five flavors. Additionally, Pasta Chips are now lower in sodium by 40 percent.
“2014 was a banner year for Pasta Chips. We expanded our distribution, product line and gathered a lot of market research from our customer base,” said Vintage Italia Pasta Chips’ Founder and CEO Jerry Bello. “We felt it was important to respond to our consumers desire for a non-GMO product and lower sodium. We’re pleased with the strides we have made and look forward to a very prosperous 2015.”
The Non-GMO Project offers North America’s only independent verification for products made according to rigorous best practices for GMO avoidance. “Our Verified products are produced in compliance with the Non-GMO Project Standard, including ongoing testing of risk ingredients,” said Bello.
Vintage Italia is the very first company to recreate the traditional baked pasta appetizer from Italy into a snack food. Its signature product, Pasta Chips, is made with the same semolina flour, ancient grains, and Italian herbs that have been celebrated for hundreds of years. The Tuscan-inspired chips are married with different seasonings based on regional Italian favorites and are available in five delectable flavors including Marinara, Alfredo, Spicy Tomato Basil, Garlic Olive Oil, and Mediterranean Sea Salt.
Pasta Chips are certified kosher, have 3g of protein, are cholesterol-free, and contain 60 percent less fat than potato chips and 20 percent less fat than pita chips. Pasta Chips are available in a 20-ounce club size bag, 5-ounce size or a single serving 2-ounce size. The 20-ounce and 5-ounce packages are resealable and can be hung or displayed on a shelf.
This incredibly popular snack was launched in late 2014 and has had incredible success with major grocery chains and retailers across the United States. 2015 holds new Italian-inspired flavor combinations, new pasta shapes and varying package sizing.
