Chemonics International Projects Developing pathways from poverty in Peru: "Over the next 12 months, the restaurant supplier Quinoa Corporation of California will buy 160,000 lbs of the Pasancaya quinoa variety from growers in the Puno corridor. “This is the first-of-its-kind import of red quinoa into the United States and amounts to $80,000 to $100,000 in farm value,” said Jim Krigbaum, marketing specialist for the PASOS project managed by Chemonics International." I ran across this item on a U.S. AID project to support small business ventures in Peru. Quinoa has been one of my favorite dishes and a fascinating top to write about. I did a piece for Newsweek International 15 years.
