Leonardo DiCaprio won several Oscars. He received his most recent Oscar for his work in the film The Revenant. Many people remember him from such films as Titanic, Gangs of New York, and many similar high quality films.
Unlike Troy McClure, the Simpsons character being referenced in the previous sentence, DiCaprio is not a washed-up actor based loosely on John Travolta. Even though his career remains strong, he plans on having a continued income after he retires. The actor’s post-retirement plans include investing in the Vegan snack food company Hippeas, according to Clearlyveg.com.
DiCaprio’s investment should not affect the company’s product line. Its most popular product includes a crunchy line of chickpeas. For many of its health-conscious Vegan consumers, the crunchy chickpeas replace chips and other crunchy snack foods. The product comes in six flavors: far out fajita, white vegan cheddar, maple haze, pepper power, happenin’ hickory and a sriracha-based flavor.
The star’s investment in Hippeas should not affect his acting schedule. Event though the star remains as down-to-Earth as he he always was, the company is excited to have a celebrity spokesperson. The company’s public relations officer offered his own statement regarding the issue.
“I’m truly excited that Strand Equity Partners and Leonardo have joined the HIPPEAS family. As the brand continues to grow with such momentum in the marketplace, it’s incredible to bring on board partners who align with our vision and values as a company. We are very enthusiastic to be sharing in this journey with them,” she told a crowd of assembled reporters.
Livio Bisterzo looks forward to working with the actor, as the company continues to develop its brand name. She plans to use the actor’s fame to help her products gain access to markets across the country. Vegan foods are a rapidly expanding niche market.
