It wasn’t so long ago that the grain quinoa would have been ignored by the majority of the western world, and certainly regarded as no more than a lesser cousin to the likes of rice, pasta and potato at the average dinner table.
Today, however, much has changed, and quinoa takes its position as a trendy health food, popular in restaurants and homes all over the globe.
This has been great news for Bolivia, where the economy has seen a huge boost from the ‘trendier’ status of this humble foodstuff.
MSC is proud to be playing a vital role in supporting the community of Bolivian farmers who are now able to make a positive gain from the grain’s worldwide demand.
In fact, now the leading carrier of Quinoa in the country, we’ve been operating in Bolivia for more than 16 years and in 2016 we were responsible for shipping more than 34.000 tons of the product.
We are able to serve our export customers by providing:
- Fast and reliable services to the main quinoa markets

In addition to this, we can offer extended vessel cut-off and late arrival service, and a highly competitive pre-carriage service, in conjunction with a well-developed intermodal offering.
