This quinoa is produced by 32 farming families in Sundia, Bolivar, Uchumarca and Ucucncha in the High Huayabamba Concession for Conservation (CCAH), who, through their organization into the Association of Quinoa Producers (APRODEQUI) have revalued one of the most traditional crops in our nation. This quinoa opens many new opportunities to these families, providing fair trade, heightened nutrition, and sustainability within their forests.
These communities in the Andean Amazon (located between 2500 and 3100 msn) bring together their ancestral knowledge with technical training in order to provide a product that is 100% organic. Good practices and traditional production methods yield a high quality product, and encourage the participation of men and women in the productive process, from preparing the land to packaging and commercializing the final product.
The most satisfying part of this initiative is to see how this group grows stronger, leading their community's development.
