GMSacha Inchi a new lifestyle for farmers and consumers”
— Nanny Katharina (Kate) Bahnsen

MEDELLIN, ANTIOQUIA, COLOMBIA, September 14, 2023/ -- GMSacha Inchi $QEDN has been working with Nestle since 2020 to develop products for Nestle. Sacha Inchi is a seed rich in Omega 3,6,9 and a complete vegan protein with all 9 essential amino acids that grows in the Amazon rain forest of Colombia, Ecuador, Peru, and Brazil.

Nestle has tried to work in the past with Sacha Inchi but found several problems:
1- Sacha Inchi seeds have a very bitter taste.
2- Sacha Inchi seeds are not easy to process into powder or other raw materials.
3- Sacha Inchi seeds are very susceptible to Staphylococcus.
4- There are not enough farmers growing Sacha Inchi worldwide to have an industrial production with GAP (Good Agriculture Practice)
5- Nestle did not have access to a company that could work with Sacha Inchi and had all the necessary certifications to transform Sacha Inchi into a raw material.

$QEDN dba GMSacha Inchi has solved all the problems that Nestle and other companies encountered with Sacha Inchi.

1- $QEDN dba GMSacha Inchi is the only company in the world that transforms Sacha Inchi into a delicious snack, a powder, and a beverage.

GMS is working with UNODC to develop and follow the GAP (Good Agriculture Practice) for all the production of Sacha Inchi. The first production of Sacha Inchi from this program starts in October 2023. The project will benefit 700 families with 475 hectares. These families are doing crop substitution with Sacha Inchi. Estimated production in 2024 is over 370 tons and 2025 is over 450 tons.
5- $QEDN dba GMSacha Inchi passed the first due diligence process with Nestle.

About the UNDOC & KOICA in Putumayo:

The United Nations Office of Drugs and Crime (UNODC) worked together with the Korean International Cooperation Agency (KOICA) to grow Sacha Inchi in el Putumayo. KOICA donated $6.2 Million USD to Colombia to grow Sacha Inchi in Putumayo to do crop subtitution.

About Sacha Inchi on the UNODC website:

An invisible 'superfood'
Although it may seem like a new product, for centuries, indigenous communities in the Amazon have cultivated and consumed this 'super seed'. “They did not extract the oil, but they made some stews or dressings for the cassava, plantain and the normal food they consumed,” says Olver.

Its cultivation in the Colombian countryside is relatively new; Its first harvests in Putumayo arose in the 90s thanks to Father Alcides Jiménez Chicangana, a priest who dedicated his life to progress in lower Putumayo, as Olver explains. “He started giving the farmers 10 seeds at a time. “People planted extensions: they planted what they were harvesting and began to look for trade.”

At the beginning of the 2000s, Peru (a country that has about 95% of sacha inchi production in the world, according to the UN Office on Drugs and Crime - UNODC -) suffered a slight drop in its commercialization after the departure of Alberto Fujimori from power. The Colombian farmers saw their opportunity here: "They began to look for varieties of sacha inchi in the Amazon and in the area of Putumayo, Caquetá, Amazonas, varieties were found, and they began to be cultivated in a small way," says the president of Agroincolsa.”
