It means “Union of the Andean Peoples” in Quechua,
the official language of the ancient Inca empire.
We seek to reconnect with the Pachamama (Mother Earth) through natural food, the community and protecting the environment. Together we are just one big Tribe!
Our story begins in 2015 in Ecuador. A country located in the heart of the Andean mountain range.
During our last year of university we realized that with the passage of time we have been forgetting our connection with the planet. What happened to the stories our grandparents told us about respecting, caring and protecting the Pachamama? We have forgotten that we are nature too.
Long story short, that was our kickoff. It was time to start our own adventure, a company with a real purpose. And so, without realizing it, we got into a path called “Wipala”. It has not been an easy path, but we are moving forward and at the same time finding the time to reconnect with our roots, nature and the Andean communities.

Guardians of the Pachamama.
People, nature and animals. We are all connected and it is time to understand that what is good for you, must also be good for everyone. That is why at Wipala we want people to begin to understand that as consumers WE have the power to create a better world. If WE choose foods that are good for your health and good for the planet, we are taking a big step towards the regeneration of our Pachamama.
