About the company

Quinola was created to bring some super tasty new flavours to your kitchen and make being healthier that little bit easier. By the way it also helps a whole load of Peruvian farmers, several handicapped people in France and the environment generally.

After 17 years as a fund manager in London and Paris, the world economy (quite correctly) decided it needed a few less people in banking (for the record I was never in the vampire squid category).

We decided to invest the redundancy cheque wisely and headed off travelling as a family for the best part of a year. Alice was 9 years old, George 7 and Oscar 3.

Before setting off I decided that a change of direction was needed. That my energy and creativity should be channelled towards helping the poor get richer rather than helping the rich get richer. It was with this is mind that I set off looking for a suitable product that I could start a fairtrade business with.

It was whilst in Peru that we discovered the delights of quinoa. The kids loved its texture and taste, especially relative to the other two local staples of overcooked rice and sun blackened potatoes.

It was only on arriving in Australia that I discovered its ‘superfood’ qualities and the choice of product was sealed.

Altiplans aims to be a deeply ethical company. We not only work directly with the smallholders of Cabana in Peru, but also employ mentally handicapped people to do the packing in France. We also ensure that the product is not only organic, but sustainably so.

Food Spotlight: Quinola Mothergrain Express Quinoa

 

 

Nutritious and easy, you can prepare a healthy and delicious meal in next to no time! Reheats in a microwave in only 90 seconds for a hot side to replace rice, pasta or spuds. Or you can enjoy it cold. Just pour out pack contents into a bowl and add whatever you have to hand for a filling salad. Add some fruit and raw veg with a dash of lime or open a tin of tuna to mix in. The recipes are endless.

Our Express Quinoa recipes have won numerous awards, including several Great Taste gold stars and overall winner of the Store Cupboard category at the 2015 FreeFrom Awards.

 

 

Two Organic Quinoa Mixes.

Pearl & Black Quinoa Mix : not only does the black quinoa add a beautiful and unusual colour to your plate, but its crunchier texture gives the mix an extra kick. Click here to see the nutrition and ingredients panel

Pearl & Red Quinoa Mix : the red quinoa adds a more pronounced nutty flavour to the mix that perfectly accentuates the smooth quinoa taste. Click here to see the nutrition and ingredients panel

Two Organic Quinoa Recipes.

Spicy Mexican : A meal in its own right, this recipe has a punch to it that hits the spot every time. Not so spicy that it over rides the taste of the ingredients but just enough to wake up the taste buds. Click here to see the nutrition and ingredients panel

Split peas : The split peas add a perfect roundness to the quinoa. The instant  on to a healthy side with veg. And let’s be honest : it’s not every day you eat split peas. Click here to see the nutrition and ingredients panel

Food Spotlight: Quinola Mothergrain Kids Meals

 

What is Quinola?

Quinola is the sacred crop of the Incas, the uber tasty, nutritious super-grain that powered the greatest empire South America has ever seen. It’s been recognised as a superfood by NASA, who have earmarked quinoa as a key food source for deep space missions. And we reckon it’s the single sexiest thing to come out of the Americas since the naked tango.
