NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--May 17, 2018--Snack it Forward is pleased to announce that Nick Desai, CEO, and creator of the wildly popular, new pulse-based crunchy puffed snack Peatos ™ by World Peas™ Brand, has been invited to present at The Reg A Fundraising Conference in New York on June 12. This gathering of investors and finance professionals is the largest forum for networking and discussion of alternative finance techniques such as Regulation A, which includes funding vehicles such as crowd funding.

Peatos ™ are a crunchy puffed snack with two times the protein (4g) and three times the fiber (3g) of Cheetos® and boasts clean, non-GMO ingredients with no artificial colors, flavors or MSG. Striking flavors include Classic Cheese, Fiery Hot, Chili Cheese, and Masala. The most unique thing about Peatos is that for the first time ever, consumers can get the marriage of the “junk food” taste th-ey crave AND the nutrition they seek in one amazing snack.

“We are excited to share our story with investors. Everything about Peatos is different, from how we taste, to our nutritional profile, our go-to-market strategy, our branding, and how quickly we have launched with some of the biggest retailers in the country,” said Nick Desai, CEO, Snack it Forward, World Peas Brand, Peatos™. “Peatos is going up against huge brands like Cheetos ® head-on: taste, mass market appeal, and price points. We offer critical elements vital to consumers, such as comforting taste and texture, better nutritional characteristics, and cleaner ingredients.”

Desai will share best practices on how he developed the snack industry’s most exciting snack in decades. Since its launch earlier this year, Peatos™ is experiencing rapid distribution gains and can be found in Kroger, Ralphs, Fry’s, King Sooper, Albertsons, Vons, Smith’s, and Safeway stores nationally and the product is selling out on Amazon. “This thing took off like a rocket,” said Desai.

Snack it Forward will present at The Reg A conference alongside companies sharing fundraising opportunities at the event and will follow up the presentation with one-on-one investor meetings.

“Investors will be captivated by our story, because World Peas aims to revolutionize and disrupt the $28 billion junk snack industry with a simple but powerful concept: create better junk food snacks by replacing the empty-calorie corn or potato base with nutrient-dense pulses, packed with plant-based protein and fiber,” added Desai.

The Reg A Conference is the premiere event of its kind, featuring a dozen panel discussions and in-depth presentations on every aspect of Regulation A securities offerings. For more information about the conference visit https://theregaconference.com/
