Food of the gods, first used by the Aztecs, and now by you
Pinole is a tasty flour made of toasted blue corn. Our producers use a traditional Aztec recipe that guaranteed a shelf-life of up to 5 years! It’s the secret ingredient that the Tarahumara carry with them on their long runs in sandals in the mountains… If you don’t know what we’re talking about:
Our pinole is made from blue corn grown through traditional farming techniques passed on from generation to generation: milpa farming (or intercropping). Farmers grow three different crops in symbiosis on a single plot of land, without the need of artificial fertilisers or pesticides.
Azure is a young startup that grew out of a PhD at Oxford University and the desire to find a solution to alleviate the poverty of indigenous farming communities in Mexico. After years of research on an active volcano, our founder decided to turn her ideas into a start-up.
