Canihua Exports to Germany


Canihua exports to Germany 

Chenopodium pallidicaule, known as cañihua, canihua, cañahua or kaniwa, is a species of goosefoot, similar in character and uses to the closely related quinoa (Chenopodium quinoa).

Cañihua is native to the Andean region, with more than 200 varieties, and it has been farmed in the Altiplano for millennia. As a crop, cañihua has distinct characteristics, including tolerance of high mountain conditions, high content of protein and dietary fiber, and rich phenolic content

Cañihua only grows at peruvian and bolivian highlands, at an altitude up to 4000 meters above sea level. 

Germany is one of the most important buyers of  Cañihua in the world. In the last year 2016, Germany imported more than US$ 300,000 of Cañihua from Peru, Bolivia and USA (distributors). 

One of the major company that import Cañihua in Germany is:
