01. about us
‘Solid Food’ is a social enterprise that produces quinoa in Ayacucho, Peru and sells it in Europe to the food industry, wholesalers and retailers. The transport from Peru to our warehouse in Antwerp, Belgium is climate neutral through the use of bio fuel. Thanks to our direct collaboration with 500 quinoa farmers in Ayacucho, Peru and our vertical integration, we can guarantee 100% traceability and achieve a major social impact. This is what makes us unique and can also offer a big win for you.
Ayacucho is a region in Peru known for its top quality quinoa: excellent taste, large grains, beautiful colors, very easy to use in many applications, great hydration capacity, etc. We offer quinoa as dry grains (all colors, organic or conventional), but also quinoa flour, quinoa flakes and puffed quinoa (in bulk, for the industry) and quinoa dry mixes and ready-to-eat quinoa mixes (for retail, under private label). More details on our products.
Solid Food is a vertically integrated company: we are producer, processor (own factory), exporter and importer (without any intermediaries). Solid Food exists of the entities Solid Food Peru SAC (sourcing & processing in Ayacucho, Peru) and Solid Food Europe BV (warehouse & sales, in Antwerp and Ghent, Belgium).

It usually takes about 6 months from sowing for quinoa to reach harvest maturity.
03. our story
discover the mother of grains
At Solid Food, we honor the tradition and the origin of this precious seed. Indeed, technically quinoa is a seed and not a grain. Our quinoa is produced strictly in the very heart of Peru; Ayacucho and by true locals.

These incredible local farmers do a marvelous job and produce your quinoa. Their enormous efforts do not go unnoticed and therefore we support them all the way. We empower the local community and help them to improve their living conditions by offering trainings, technical assistance and the financing of local projects. We spend 25% (!) of our profits to our social projects.
