Nutrishake Andino is part of StartUp Peru’s second generation. It is a program that, along with 40 other projects from various entrepreneurs and incubators, gives financial aid. To date, 181 innovative projects have benefited from StartUp Peru on a national level.

Through the project, Peruvian entrepreneurs Daniel Nuñez, Giancarlo Zegarra and Carlos Noceda, proved to be committed to fight child malnutrition and anemia in rural areas.

Nutrishake offers an instant, gluten-free and preservative-free shake, made with 100% Andean grains (quinoa, kiwicha, cañihua and tarwi). It is in a single package, containing high nutritional value. In addition, they produce energy bars and they are about to launch another drink and cookies.

As a first step in participating in the Agora Partnerships program, Nutrishake members are required to attend the “Entrepreneurs Meeting” to be held in Mexico in February 2017.

Nutrishake Andino was also selected in the competition “Challenge Biodiversity” of StartUp Peru, aimed at companies committed to the sustainable use and enhancement of biodiversity.
