Prairie Quinoa is a family-owned and operated business based in the city of Portage la Prairie, Manitoba. Our goal is to produce a quality Canadian-grown quinoa, while utilizing local resources, farmland and farmers.
Prairie Quinoa’s founder, Percy Philips, is an engineer recently turned engineer/farmer. While travelling in Peru, Percy was introduced to the local quinoa production techniques, and enjoyed the variety of quinoa dishes that were served in the areas he was visiting. He began to wonder “can quinoa be grown in Canada?” – the answer, after 5 years of hard work; a qualified yes!
