A week with Quinoa Corporation in Bolivia 2013

One of the most expected visits set in Andean Valley Corporation???s agenda for October, was the week Mr. Blake Waltrip Quinoa Corporation??s CEO spend with us. It was a week of meetings with CABOLQUI, IFC-World Bank, CPTS and trips to visit many quinoa farmers and communities and a Andean Valley Quinoa Added Value Products degustation menu.

Mr. Waltrip had been to Bolivia at the beginning of this year to assist to the event CABOLQUI organized for ???2013 International Year of Quinoa???; this time he came alone and got a personalized tour by CEO Javier Fern??ndez in Quinoa Producing Communities. Not only was this a great visit for business concerns and plans for next year, but it also had a great social outcome, as Quinoa Corporation decided to support a Program for Corporate Social Responsibility to all the Communities of the Andean Valley Quinoa suppliers program that are Organically Certified by Andean Valley Corporation.
