About Us


We started Bekaa Farms because of a conspicuous void in the marketplace: truly good snack food. Our passion for all things gluten-free led us to develop products that are both incredibly nutritious AND pass the yummy test. The best part of our business is listening to our happy customers!

¬†Our Mission is to provide healthy low-cost snacks to folks who want the impossible: Satisfying their “munchies” (i.e. cravings for sweet or savory junk food) with something positively 100% healthy.

Our products are natural, high in fiber, and gluten free. They contain no saturated fat, chemicals, or hydrogenated oils.

ZipChips fill a market niche left by so-called “health food snacks” because our ingredients are true. You will find nothing like “reconstituted potato flakes” or ingredients that are better left in the world of chemistry. Even with all this goodness, ZipChips are priced competitively with the leading mass-produced national brands.

Company Beginnings

Bekaa Farms was created in 2010 as a family business to share the Northwest’s sensational apples and other natural ingredients with folks who appreciate the benefits of going gluten-free and who don’t want to sacrifice on flavor and nutrition. We’re still a small operation, but love to connect with our customers, sponsor worthy events (like Hood to Coast) and help out in the community. This is what “local” is all about.

What’s Next

In 2016, we have exited the market for now, taking a hiatus to evaluate further options. In the meantime, this site will remain active and we expect to announce the next phase of Bekaa Farms in the near future. We appreciate the excitement and support of thousands of “ZipFans” since 2010 and would ask that you check back here periodically.
