Keen One Quinoa

Keen One Quinoa is the maker of the Quinoa Cups, organic, plant based quinoa meals that are quick and easy to prepare. Keen One Quinoa first sprouted in an unassuming classroom at the University of Colorado at Boulder Leeds School of Business in 2007. Tasked with a class project on new product development, founder Christopher Algea — a cash-strapped college student at the time — decided quinoa could be an affordable, nutritious option over the empty calories of typical dorm food.

Since its inception, Keen One Quinoa has expanded nationally, selling both online and in stores around the country. Staying true to its roots as a bright-eyed college student’s convenience food brainchild, the brand continues to promote culinary creativity, use sustainable ingredients, and source fair trade organic quinoa to benefit cooperatives in the Highlands of the Andes Mountains.
