Ardent Mills said its relationship with Colorado Quinoa will help further the market for U.S.-produced quinoa by making pricing more stable, offering scalable supply, and increasing the sustainability and traceability of the products.

“We are excited to collaborate with Colorado Quinoa as part of our commitment to ancient and heirloom grains, plant-based ingredients, and value-added products,” said The Annex General Manager Shrene White in the release. “By being the exclusive supplier of Colorado Quinoa, we are furthering our commitment to family farms, the future of food and making The Annex the go-to source for domestically grown quinoa for our customers.”
