Chickapea Pasta, a Canadian producer of organic pasta, has received an investment from District Ventures Capital, the venture capital fund established by Dragon's Den star Arlene Dickinson. The amount of funding was not disclosed.
Made from just two ingredients, chickpeas and lentil flour, Chickapea pastas are gluten free, non-GMO Project Verified, certified organic and vegan, and offer 23 g of protein per serving. The company will introduce a Macaroni & Cheese version this fall.
Dickinson noted that Chickapea Pasta with its healthy, innovative products and a strong sales track record is the kind of company her fund is looking to invest in.
