Silas Capital invested in 2015.
Vintage Italia is the maker of Pasta Chips brand pasta snacks. Made from semolina flour, ancient grains and Italian herbs, Pasta Chips come in savory pasta flavors like Garlic & Olive Oil, Marinara, Alfredo, Sea Salt, Spicy Tomato Herb, and now Veggie. Pasta Chips are a baked, crispy and better-for-you snack—containing 20% less fat than pita chips and 60% less fat than potato chips. Pasta Chips first hit store shelves in late 2013 and are now in scores of retailers including Safeway, Albertsons, Walmart, Target, Vons, Harris Teeter and local grocery stores everywhere.
Pasta Chips was born through the passion of Jerry Bello, a foodie and serial entrepreneur behind a number of enormously popular snack food successes—including Sensible Portions, the maker of Veggie Straws, which catapulted to $100 million in annual sales in 5 years (acquired by Hain Celestial) and Sheila G's Brownie Brittle, which grew to record annual sales in under 3 years.
