COLQUINOA

This Colombian company has the most advanced quinoa grain dry cleaning and processing plant in South America, capable of obtaining a purity level of 99.96%. Thanks to the company's state of the art technology they are able to convert the quinoa grain into instant quinoa powder with the highest nutritional delivery and assimilation, the best flavor and solubility. The company has operated net losses in the past two years. Main causes of the current problem of losses and illiquidity are on one hand losses due to an own bad harvest in 2015, and over costs and over time of building a new plant in Colombia. On the other hand the company recorded purchase orders postponed and lost in 2016 because of the exceptional long truck strike in Colombia. Despite temporary illiquidity, the company has a profitable business structure. The compound annual growth rate from 2012 to 2016 is 81%. The intended investment will form the basis for further growth.
