Gogo Quinoa’s Organic Quinoa Certification Defines Quality Ingredients Without Compromise…

Our organic quinoa certification reflects our dedication to a more sustainable world, one in which life can flourish today and for years to come. Our products showcase our commitment to quality ingredients, all without compromise. Gogo Quinoa products are also free of artificial preservatives, flavours and colors.

What Does Organic Quinoa Really Mean?

Organic farmers don’t use synthetic chemicals to manage weeds, pests and disease in their crops. With minimum tillage, they encourage a healthy predator-prey relationship that saves crops from being overturned by one single species.

Our organic quinoa farmers combine and rotate their crops, alternating plants and recycling plant and animal residues to encourage nutrient cycling and create a richer environment that attracts more insects, birds and wildlife — above and underground. This biodiverse soil also restores organic components that sequester more carbon than conventional soil to help fight global warming.

Organic Quinoa Grains are Also Exempt From Canada’s List of 12 Principle Allergens

We are certified organic by Ecocert Canada. By using organic ingredients, we stay away from all kinds of pesticides, herbicides and chemicals that are harmful to the human body and the environment. Why are a few of the products not certified 100% organic? Some of the ingredients in certain products are not certified organic. They come from native harvests thus ensuring the absence of any genetically modified organisms. Or, they come from small farmers that are not certified organic yet.
