Dr Corin Storkey (New Zealand) and Sally Huapaya (Peru) - The Maca experts are life partners who work in collaboration with a farming family in the Andes of Peru. Their farm to table model focuses on preserving the ancient cultivation techniques, the culture and sacred ceremonies of maca and connecting consumers directly to their farm, farmer, community and spirit of the plant. They educate kiwis how to consume maca and how to use it to treat different health conditions based on scientific substantiation of traditional claims. They also run retreats and cultural exchanges to Peru to live with them on the farm and experience true Incan life during the annual maca harvest. They recently won Organic Brand of the Year at the NZ Organic Week for their work on sustainable change with superfoods.
