Quinoa is a traditional plant cultivated for over 5,000 years in the highlands of South America. Despite appearances, it is not a cereal. Quinoa seed has exceptional nutritional benefits. Quinoa is rich in iron and proteins and contains all the essential amino acids, like soybeans.
Our quinoa is cultivated at high altitude, in Cajamarca (Andes, northern Peru) and Puno (city near Lake Titicaca). We work indeed with local producers who cultivate between 3,000 and 4,000 m altitude. The main harvest takes place between the months of May and June, but some producers having access to water all year round offer a second crop in October.
