The British Quinoa Company

Shropshire, United Kingdom

  • Founded: 2006

The British Quinoa Company started back in 2001 when Stephen read a magazine article about the fantastic nutritional properties of quinoa, leading him to buy a small amount to try the product.
Fortunately, he loved it, but it got him thinking........wouldn’t it be great if we could produce British grown quinoa on the family farm?
And so, the experiment began!
