Q Natural Foods™ quinoa is a grain that is cultivated in small farms high in the Andean Altiplano region of South America. It is a source of complete protein, as it contains all the essential amino acids. * Red and black quinoa have a nuttier flavour and holds its shape better than the white variety when cooked.
Our company is committed to supporting local farmers and communities producing quality quinoa. The philosophy of our company is to promote the economic development and social security of local farmers. This includes pre-financing their crops, making long term purchasing commitments and paying them fair and sustainable prices. This way, we try to enhance the social security of our producer partners in the region where our quinoa is grown.
