“INCA’S GOLD” product ingredients are imported from South America from indigenous farmers-suppliers, they are finished and worked into retail packages with Canadian partners such as pouch makers, co-packers, warehouses, and logistics. INCA’S GOLD is available at Loblaw stores, in more than 150 stores under the Loblaw umbrella, including Zehrs and some of Your Independent Grocers.” says Jordan Ender of Grey Jay Sales.
INCA’S GOLD, founded by Juana Garcia, provides nutritious gluten-free organic superfoods that are ethically sourced. She created her business with a purpose — to bring healthy gluten-free foods from her ancestors to the world, this includes Quinoa, Chia and Maca.
The development of the company was inspired by her autistic son’s remarkable health improvements after including these foods in his diet. “I created INCA’S GOLD brand to bring these foods to help my son who was diagnosed with Autism, I knew he needed a gluten-free healthy diet to support his well-being.” says Juana Garcia, owner, and founder of the brand. “We have learned that our diet directly affects our health, mental health and ability to thrive. I found this was also true of my son. When I had a hard time finding nutritious gluten-free, organic options for him, I knew I had to take action and I decided to import the superfoods I was raised on.”
As part of her commitment to autism, Juana plans to donate 5 cents per retail package sold in Canada to Autism Canada. “I want to share my products and knowledge with others affected by Autism which is why I am donating part of our revenue to Autism Canada based on packages sold, I want to support and create awareness.”
“Our INCA’S GOLD brand was created to illustrate our respect for our ancient superfoods that were valued as gold by the Incan civilization for their unique nutritional and health benefits. So, today we can continue appreciating these superfoods as harvest of organic gold for better health.” continues Garcia.
The ingredients sourced directly from indigenous farmer-suppliers has allowed us to establish strong partnerships, fair trade payment with respectful treatment and mutual sustainable practices agreements with them.
Autism Canada is the only Canadian autism advocacy organization with a national perspective on current challenges facing those with ASD (autism spectrum disorder) and their families. “We’re extremely proud of our partnership with INCA’S GOLD as they introduce their product lines in Loblaw stores in Ontario,” said Barbara Patten, Executive Director, Autism Canada. “Raising awareness of autism is an essential first step toward acceptance. As we celebrate Autism Acceptance Month in October our hope is that we see more forward-thinking leaders, like Juana and Loblaw Companies Ltd., setting the tone for future products and retail in Canada.”
