Bolivia: Crazy for Quinoa

Bolivia: Crazy for Quinoa

Quinoa is believed to be one of the world’s healthiest foods. Yet in Bolivia, the world’s largest grower and exporter, quinoa has been seen as “poor person’s food” and most Bolivians have favoured less nutritious imported grains. Now a campaign to promote quinoa consumption in Bolivia is not only improving diets but the livelihoods of small farmers. This special project was funded through an IFAD grant to Bioversity International and implemented by PROINPA Foundation in Bolivia.
