Our Peruvian Quinoa
Our French Quinoa
We pride ourselves on sourcing and producing the finest quinoa-based products available. It started with a three-year quest in Peru, searching for the finest quinoa there is, and once we found it, we dedicated ourselves solely to the production of premium quinoa products.

WHERE IS IT PRODUCED?

There are about 500 smallholder farmers that form the Coopain Cabana cooperative. They cultivate fields up at 4000m in some pretty harsh conditions, just north of Lake Titicaca in southern Peru. We have also just started working with a second cooperative in the poorest area of Peru in Andahualyas, where over 200 small hold farmers have formed the CAGMA cooperative.

HOW IS THE QUINOA GROWN?

No chemical nasties or fossil fuel fertilizers are used in our quinoa production, and we go further than that, as we believe that sustainability is as important as organic certification. That is why all our farmers practice mixed agriculture and crop rotation and allow the fragile land to regenerate via fallow periods.

WHAT ABOUT THE FARMERS?

The cooperatives help their members beyond buying in their crops at above market prices. By obliging farmers to have warehouses, they ensure that the harvests are sold into the cooperative across a period, avoiding the dangers and pressures of selling all the production in one go. Communal land is equitably distributed to ensure that all families, regardless of their private holdings, have access to sufficient land. This ensures that all farmers can live off the land and do not become migrant labour, the scourge of many developing nations.

Our Coopain Cabana cooperative has set up a microcredit scheme, as well. Though they would like to have more capital in the fund (something we are working with them on), it is an important first step away from the usury of moneylenders that prey on the poor. With the security of the crops as collateral, the cooperative can lend small amounts to allow farmers to seed more land or meet short-term expenditure.

Our French Quinoa

Our French grown quinoa is the only whole grain quinoa on the market. With almost double the fibre of your average quinoa, this whole grain quinoa has less fat and less salt than standard quinoa. Full of minerals and gluten-free, this quinoa is especially rich in iron and magnesium.

WHERE IS IT PRODUCED?

Our Wholegrain Quinoa is grown in France, in the Loire Valley. The whole adventure started eleven years ago when Jason Abbot embarked on the challenge of growing Peru’s ancient mothergrain in his family’s country: La France. It's been a long process but Jason managed to develop several saponin free quinoa varieties suitable for the French climate.
