Global expansion of quinoa and challenges for the Andean region

Quinoa (Chenopodium quinoa, Willd.‎) is an Andean grain crop recognized as an ally for global food security due to its high nutritional value.‎ However, quinoa globalization entails challenges to the countries of origin.‎ Farmers face a scenario of new concerns and competitors.‎ In 2018, quinoa was present for research and production in 123 countries.‎ Although 74% of global exports are still supplied by Peru and Bolivia, production outside the Andes is increasing.‎ In addition, producer prices collapsed in 2015 while yields remained unstable, averaging 0.‎4–1.‎1 t ha−1.‎ Understanding the reality of the new quinoa situation is fundamental to face the challenges of encouraging local biodiversity, promoting market diversification and cooperating with inclusive processes towards equitable benefits.‎
