Andean Naturals was founded in 2004 with the mission of sharing quinoa with the world. Although the company’s initial plan was to sell directly to consumers, it quickly realized that there was a more pressing need for a reliable industrial link in the supply chain. Once large food companies could access a high volume, high quality supply of organic quinoa, they were be able to meet the booming demand of this soon-to-be health-food staple.

Andean Naturals today is a bridge between South American quinoa farmers and US food companies. It facilitates the growth of the organic and fair-trade quinoa market while improving the lives of over 4,500 small family farmers through increased income, technical assistance and sustained demand.

Andean Naturals has offices in Foster City-California, Sheboygan-Wisconsin, a cleaning plant in La Paz, Bolivia and a pre-shipment quality control laboratory in Lima, Peru. Together with it joint venture partner Specialty Commodities the company supplies _ of all quinoa in North America.
