Keenwah Quinoa is a Galway business established in 2015 which specialises in Quinoa based food products. Quinoa is a gluten free highly nutritious grain which contains iron, protein, potassium, zinc folic acid and thyamine. All this from one ingredient, Quinoa!
Keenwah Quinoa was founded by Aisling Hanley a health conscious mum of five who wanted to give her babies the best start in life by feeding them a highly nutritious first food; particular during the first 1000 days of life which is a crucial time of growth and development.
Quinoa organic babyfood is an excellent alternative to commercial baby cereals and an ideal first food for babies. It requires no cooking unlike regular Quinoa grains / flakes / flour all which need to be cooked or ground first.
Aisling joined the Food Academy programme in her Local Enterprise Office in Galway. SuperValu have worked with and encouraged Keenwah Quinoa from concept to getting the product to market. SuperValu assisted Keenwah Quinoa through the challenging initial phases with workshops which provided the business with business supports, technical and commercial advice.
Plans for the future of Keenwah Quinoa, include a line of complementary Quinoa products.
