Quinola’s philosophy is deeply ethical. They believe that business is a good thing, but that business is also often horribly unfair to the growers themselves. They were sick of seeing the farmer bullied into a corner, and set about to balance the scales a bit.
Quinola’s quinoa is sourced directly from a group of 500 famers in Peru called Cabana Co-operative, based just north of Lake Titicaca. Quinola want to do things just a little bit differently, and make sure that all quinoa is bought under fair trade rules. No chemical nasties are used during the growing process, and the farmers use a mixed agriculture and crop rotation method which is better for local wildlife and allows the land to regenerate between harvests.
- Ideal for gluten free porridge or granola bars
- Source of protein and iron
- High in fibre
Made with fair trade Quinoa. Quinola supports a group of about 500 farmers from the Cabana co-operative in Peru and has been awarded nine Gold Stars in the annual Great Taste Awards and four Free From Awards.
