There’s only one “quinoa real,” or royal quinoa, and it’s grown on Bolivia’s arid, volcanic Salar De Uyuni salt flat. Revered by ancient Incas as “chisaya mama” (chee-sa-waya ma-ma) or “mother grain,” this nutrition source is fluffier, nuttier and without the bitterness so common to lesser grades. Just one spoonful, and you’ll see why it should be the only quinoa that graces your plate.
Alter Eco is based on the premise that food is fundamental to life – and whole, healthy, delicious food can make life better for people all over the world. By working directly with the small-scale farmers who grow our quinoa, rice, sugar and cacao, helping them institute Fair Trade and Organic practices and assisting them in improving both quality of food and quality of life, we’re creating a system that benefits everyone involved. Our values extend to the flora, fauna and fields – we work with our co-op partners to preserve heirloom grains, replenish and reforest the land. And as a GHG Protocol 3 Carbon Zero business, we offset more carbon than we emit.
