Four Days of Royal Quinoa

Starting March 22nd and ending March 25th, CABOLQUI celebrated ???2013: International Year of Quinoa???. This was a 4 day event that included both international and local guests and media. The international guests integrated important figures from the quinoa, political and investor???s world, as well as present and future quinoa partners and/or buyers. Over 20 countries where present at the event, including USA, Denmark, Canada, Brazil, Japan, Germany, Colombia, and many more.

Many activities where planned for the 4 days of the event, such as: an initial SWOT Analysis of ???The Future of Royal Quinoa in Bolivia??? (La Paz); visits to the Royal Quinoa plantations in Uyuni (Potos??); presentations with the technology developed by CPTS, technology that amongst other goals, also aims to try and ensure Bolivian quinoa production levels for the future (Ayamaya-La Paz); a visit to PROINPA to learn about their organic supplies for soil conservation, pest control, fertilization, etc. (Cochabamba); and a final SWOT Analysis for conclusions (Cochabamba). All this with over 150 guests.

Even though the event is over, there is still a lot left of the year 2013, so if you weren???t able to make it to this event, you still have a chance to participate in the International Year of Quinoa in many other ways, and we???ll be around all year long if you???d like to come visit any time.
