Chocho is an ancient lupin
What is Chocho?

Chocho (pronounced ‘cho-cho’) is an ancient lupin that’s been cultivated by Indigenous farmers for thousands of years. It grows in the Andes Mountains at an elevation of 11,000-14,000 feet. Chocho is extremely nutrient-dense and packed with protein, fiber, iron, and calcium.

The coolest part? Chocho creates a cycle of regeneration. It thrives on rain water alone, nourishes the body, and pulls nitrogen deep into the soil as it grows, making the soil healthier and more fertile for future crops.

Let’s do food better. Together.

We hear the word “sustainable” a lot, and while we appreciate it, to “sustain” means “to keep things as they are.” We believe that what the world needs now is to get better—not stay the same. That’s why regenerative practices are at the heart of everything we do. From land use to resource consumption to waste management, we strive for our impact to be a positive one.

Our roots are in agriculture

Mikuna was founded by fifth generation Ecuadorian farmer and former professional athlete, Ricky Echanique. At the onset of his athletic career, Ricky faced health and digestion issues, which set him on a new path: to find a better form of plant-based nutrition. This journey led him back home to Ecuador where he found Chocho, the “Andean super protein”.

Ricky’s family heritage and our personal relationships allow us to cut out the middleman and empower our farmers with education, fair trade, and a microloan program to help take their income from cents to dollars—because to us, the local impact is as important as the global one.
