The Maca Experts – Corin and Sally
New Zealand & Peru
Dr Corin Storkey (New Zealand) and Sally Huapaya (Peru) are life partners who work in collaboration with a farming family in the Andes of Peru. Their farm to table model focuses on preserving the ancient cultivation techniques, the culture and history of maca and connecting consumers directly to their farm, farmer, community and sacred spirit of the plant. They run retreats and cultural exchanges to Peru to live with them on the farm and experience true Incan life during the annual maca harvest.
Corin and Sally recently won Organic Brand of the Year at the NZ Organic Week 2019.
