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.
