Why I started Incas Treasure
About Incas Treasure
My name is Ahmad, born and raised in Ecuador.
When I was a child, I was taught that the treasure of the Incan Empire was hidden in my country. As a 6 year old, I immediately started looking for it in my backyard by organizing my friends and cousins to dig holes, imagining the riches we’d find within that lost treasure.
As I grew up, I never forgot about this great legend nor did I doubt it was true, but my definition of wealth had changed: it no longer only meant riches, but its importance shifted toward how much I could serve, how many people I loved and loved me, the quality of sleep I had, and how much of my life would be enjoyed in the fulfillment of my ongoing sporting, academic, spiritual, and entrepreneurial dreams.
In addition, I am immensely proud to be Ecuadorian, my country is blessed with great talent, natural resources, and an extremely favorable weather: a strategic place to start up a business to make a difference in people’s lives.
Being right on the equator, our country has the longest exposure of sunlight time on the planet making its location strategic to be a great exporter of foodstuffs to the world. UV rays, (present in the magic of sunshine) are responsible for the fixation of flavor, color and aroma in everything that grows in our lands.
Inca’s Treasure begins with the aspiration of redefining wealth. I feel I have found the real treasure of the Inca’s in the fertility of the ecuadorian soil and the warmth of the people that sow and harvest it. Also, I have been very fortunate to work side by side with an amazing team who shares this dream and wishes to share it with the world. Together we strive to build a bridge that evolves people’s eating habits by connecting organic farming with conscious products that nourish the heart, the mind and the soul.
In a few years, we have grown to 15 team members in 3 countries alongside 90 farmers who now have an organic certification and the technical support needed to ensure the highest quality standards.
Our products: superfood delicacies, ancient culture legacies are sold worldwide through our online store and have commercial operations in the United States, Canada, Chile, Finland, Japan and Ecuador.
May we sow dreams and harvest healthier lifestyles together.
