If you don’t care about the world then stop reading this page.

We’re in love with us humans. We might be a country mile from perfection. But when we all decide on a course of action, there’s absolutely no stopping us. We have the potential to reverse climate change. We can raise everyone out of poverty. But first, there’s a fire we need to light. The belief that being generous to the environment, to ourselves and each other, is the only way to achieve better.

We are Quinola. We care, and we know that you care too.

We know that it’s not always clear how to shop well for yourself, others and our planet so we wanted to make things easier. So we promise to be generous. To everyone. We support our farmers with guaranteed fair pay, offset our carbon and plastic emissions, and strive to provide accessible, healthy quinoa.

We have started the Generous Revolution; will you join us?

We are always working on exciting generous projects, and we want like-minded generous brands and people to get involved. Subscribe to our Generous Newsletter to get updates on the #GenerousRevolution and the projects we work on.

Over $ 300,000 extra revenue to our Cooperatives

2300 kgs of Plastic Saved from the ocean

Through our partnership with rePurpose Global, our packaging has gone plastic neutral. We are collecting one plastic packet for every one we sell. Through our work with CARPE India, over 2300kgs of plastic waste is diverted from oceans and landfills, over 50 waste workers and family members are provided with additional income and 6 Tons of CO2 emissions are avoided. So not only is plastic waste being removed from the environment, RePurpose provides additional income to informal waste workers empowering them and their families further. The program also reduces the carbon footprint of local cement plants by providing recycled plastic bails as a cleaner fuel source alternative - opposed to the factories using the usual dirty coking coal. That’s Our Plastic Neutral Promise.

1,624,492 trees planted in Peru

We co-finance a certified reforestation project in San Martin, Peru, guaranteeing the offset of our maritime transport CO2. Since this projects creation in 2010, 1,624,492 trees have been planted by Pur Projet in Peru's Jubilación Segura region. The credits associated with this compensation correspond to the carbon sequestered in the biomass of the trees. The next verification of the project by the will take place in 2024, when the credits corresponding to Quinola's emissions will be recognised.
