Amaranth Worldwide Project

Amaranth Worldwide Project (AWP) is a non-profit organization with the goal of increasing the beneficial utilization of amaranth as a source of food, medicine, and in other applications.

AWP commits to uniting a community of people, companies, and research institutions to advance this goal. Specifically, AWP will serve as a platform and catalyst for relationships among these groups so that all the benefits that amaranth has to offer to people are discovered and made known.

Sharing a photo from the National Amaranth Congress in Mexico. We registered more than 500 participants, including speakers from Argentina and Ecuador.    

We are also working with a Federal Congressman to push for a government agenda with amaranth.

I believe the enthusiasm and active participation is a sign of more good things to come for amaranth.

Saludos, Pete Noll.
