Visit to Colombian Associates

Colombia is known for being a beautiful country with very friendly people and the fourth biggest country in South America; but did you know that now it is also getting a lot of attention because of the great quinoa market this country represents?
With a population of approximately 47 million people, and over 1.000.000 km2 of mainland, Colombia not only represents an important consumers market, but also is one of the South American quinoa producing countries; and keeping all this in mind is that Javier Fernandez CEO and the partners Sebastian Zamora and Vanessa Parra made an important decision to expand Andean Valley???s branches all the way to Colombia and introduce Organic Royal Quinoa and Andean Valley???s Added Value Products to Colombians.
At first this was just an idea, and then in 2012 the first Andean Valley S.A. container arrived at Colombia and now, 2 years later, Andean Valley Colombia is present in most supermarkets, restaurants and ecologic stores all through the most important cities in Colombia thanks to the hard work of our Colombian Associates.
In February 2014 Javier Fernandez CEO spent a few days visiting these great Associates, visiting fields of quinoa production, visiting all the supermarkets in Bogot?? where you can find the whole Andean Valley Added Value Brand and getting to know many of Andean Valley Colombia???s biggest clients as well; and after evaluating the results we are having in Colombia, there is no hesitation to admit that what started out as just an idea, was not only a GREAT one, but also an important investment as Andean Valley Colombia has become one of Andean Valley Corporation???s most solid branches.
