- Its products are Qhali – Natural Protein, Nanax – Superfood and Munay – Superfood Kids, based on Andean grains.
Nanax, a company that exports superfoods for adults and athletes to Europe and Asia, will participate for the second time in the Expoalimentaria fair, which will take place from September 27 to 29 at the Jockey Exhibition Center.
“This year we will bring our products in improved versions. For example, without gluten, without sugar and without panela”, commented Cynthia Navarrete, in charge of Research, Development and Quality Control of the company.
He explained that Expoalimentaria has always meant a very good experience for the company, since it has allowed them to establish important contacts. “We hope to integrate two more markets to our list and maintain the already established commercial ties, with greater volumes for 2018,” he added.
The Nanax line consists of three products: Qhali – Natural Protein (cañihua and maca), Nanax – Superfood (quinoa, kiwicha, cañihua, maca, cacao, panela and algarrobo) and Munay – Superfood Kids (quinoa, kiwicha, cañihua, cacao, algarrobo and panela).
The company has two production plants and 15 suppliers of inputs. “We work directly with producers, supporting sustainable trade and the development of value-added product ventures,” concluded Navarrete.
The Ministry of Foreign Trade and Tourism launched in February 2017 the “Superfoods Peru” brand through which it seeks to position those Peruvian foods that have important nutritional properties.
The foods that were selected as superfoods are quinoa, kiwicha, cañihua, maca, yacon, chestnuts, carob, sacha inchi, giant corn from Cusco, purple corn, camu camu, cherimoya, guanabana, lucuma, mangoes, grapes, mandarins, anchovy, blueberries, asparagus, broccoli, avocado, pomegranate, cocoa and chocolates.
According to Mincetur, the top 10 markets for Peruvian exports are the United States, the Netherlands, the United Kingdom, Spain, Canada, Hong Kong, France, China, Belgium and Germany.
Nanax won the Innovative Entrepreneur Contest by the Ministry of Production, which means an amount of S/ 50 thousand provided by the Ministry to reinvest it in the growth of the company.
