Maqui

Did you know?

Maqui was discovered by Claude Gay, a French botanist, in Chile in the mid-19th century. It was then known as the 'Chilean grape'. Indeed, the seeds of this edible plant are used to make wine in Chile.

Originally from Patagonia, where our teams went to find it, maqui is a small sweet berry that resembles a blackcurrant in size and colour. A superfruit recognised for its nutritional properties, it is particularly renowned as rich source of vitamin C and for its antioxidant properties.
