Hi, we're Aaron & Victor, the co-founders of Peacasa.
Back in 2018, Victor, my old roommate from University, convinced me to take a break from the office to hike the GR20 trail in Corsica, France. After 10 days of hiking, we visited Victor's hometown of Nice where I discovered a traditional street food called Socca - a simple chickpea crepe made with olive oil and baked in a wood-fired oven. I had to make my own since I couldn't find any in Canada.
I started experimenting in my parent's kitchen in Canada while Victor did the same in his parent's kitchen in France. After a few months and hundreds of recipes, we started lightly frying the chickpea crepes to crispy perfection. The nutty aroma of roasted chickpeas caught our family's attention and the taste kept them asking for more.
I knew in that moment that I had to start a snack food company - I launched Peacasa and started selling at a local Farmers Market in Toronto.
Victor left his job as a professional sailor in France and came to Canada to join the company and help get Peacasa to other health conscious chip lovers that don't want to settle.
