Punku Chocolate Chip Quinoa Cookies 198g (RRP £4.99)
In this month’s box you will find a giant box of scrummy choc chips cookies, woohoo! 12 individually wrapped crispy baked cookies scattered with delicious dark chocolate chips, these delicious cookies are a perfect and convenient healthy snack. Growing up in Bolivia meant that Patricia, the founder of Punku, has always enjoyed delicious, healthy and nutritious Bolivian foods made with Royal Quinoa (pronounced keen-wah). ‘Punku’ in Aymara (the native language spoken in some places in The Andes) means ‘door’ and was chosen as metaphor for this new commercial enterprise - introducing the UK to the delicious, high quality, healthy, and natural foods from Bolivia. Although vast and rich in natural resources, Bolivia is one of the poorest countries in Latin America. Since quinoa prices have gone up because western countries found it so healthy, many Bolivians depend now directly on quinoa trade. The quinoa fields are located in one of the poorest areas in the country. Punku feel strongly that everyone has the right to have a decent income, good health, education, care and a positive outlook for the future. Their Bolivian suppliers have developed education and health programs to assist their employees. Buying their products means that hundreds of Bolivian families will benefit from a better standard of living, so we are excited to feature them in our boxes and stock them in our online vegan supermarket. Let us and @punkuquinoafoods know what you think of these delicious cookies!
