CABOLQUI is a non-profit organization that aims to develop all the active participants in the quinoa chain and other organic products by promoting organic production, social and environmental responsibility and the development of small farmers.
CABOLQUI was first created in 2005 by a group of export companies highly committed to the country´s development and particularly to the organic and quinoa areas. Their objective is that through CABOLQUI, concrete solutions can be generated to solve the challenges faced by the quinoa chain and productive complex.
To make this project viable, the companies have taken on an additional comittment with CABOLQUI. This comittment is to make monthly financial contributions based on a percentage of their exports. Consolidating in this way, the sustainable operation of the chamber and also a capital base to generate new projects.
