Unicorn has had a relationship with South America since the company was formed 12 years ago. Due to the global health craze phenomenon, seeds from the region have been increasingly in demand. The region has the perfect climate for seed production and can boast the production of high quality products. It is therefore a natural source of premium products that Unicorn sell – the region produces some of the highest quality chia, quinoa and sesame.
Chia (Salvia hispanica) is a flowering plant native to Southern Mexico and Guatemala. Globally, 80% of the Chia grain seed supply is produced in Latin America countries due to the regions favourable climate, with the rest coming from Australia. However, some African countries are emerging as producers. Chia seeds are not typically grown in Europe. The seeds of the chia plant are small and speckled black, brown, white and grey with a crunchy texture and slight nutty aroma. Black chia seeds from Nicaragua are very rare. The length of the growing cycle for chia seeds varies based on location and is influenced by the height of the land, but is usually between 100 – 180 days.
