From South America With Love
Inca's Gold is the brainchild of Peruvian-Canadian entrepreneur Juana Garcia, who was dismayed that the nutritious superfoods of her youth were nowhere to be found in her new home.
Finding it increasingly difficult to find healthy, affordable food options for her son, she decided to take matters into her own hands, starting her own South American superfood distribution business (an industry almost exclusively dominated by men) in 2011.
Through her hard work and perseverance she has established a community of like-minded individuals driven by a single purpose: working directly with farmers to bring high quality, delicious and nutritious superfoods to tables across the globe at affordable prices.
About Our Trademark
Quinoa was a sacred crop to the people of the Inca Empire, to the point that the Emperor or Sapa Inca would sow the first seeds of the growing season. So closely were they associated that Quinoa became colloquially known as "the gold of the Incas".
Paying homage to this association and her proud Peruvian heritage, Juana has created a seal that illustrates this relationship, our promise of quality as well as our deep respect for the heritage of the incredible superfoods of South America - Inca's Gold.
Beyond ensuring that our products are 100% organic, twice-washed, gluten free and non-GMO, we exclusively carry Royal Quinoa, widely regarded as the best Quinoa in the world.
Fair-Trade Done Right
We are closely associated with the collective of South American farmers that we work with. Their success is our success.
Because we work directly with the farmers, we cut middlemen out of the sourcing and distribution process. This allows us to offer our quality products at competitive prices.
