Andean Dream to Serve as "Champion" Sponsor of the 2015 Special Olympics

Los Angeles-Based Company to Participate in the World's Largest International Sports and Humanitarian Event This Month, by Providing 48,000 Quinoa Cookies for the 2015 Special Olympic World Games

LOS ANGELES, CA--(Marketwired - Jul 9, 2015) - Andean Dream, the maker of award-winning gluten/corn-free and vegan cookies, pastas and soup mix, is proud to announce its "Champion" sponsorship of the world's biggest international sports and humanitarian event this summer, by providing 48,000 quinoa cookies for the 2015 Special Olympic World Games taking place this month.

Beginning July 25th and continuing through August 2nd, 7,000 athletes with intellectual disabilities will travel to Los Angeles from 177 countries to compete in 25 sporting events -- including aquatics, gymnastics, track and field, basketball and soccer -- played at multiple Southern California-area venues. These events showcase amazing athleticism and demonstrate the courage, determination and joy of these individuals living out their dreams in front of the world.

"Andean Dream gluten-free quinoa cookies can be enjoyed by everyone, regardless of dietary restrictions because they are also allergen-friendly containing no, dairy, eggs, soy, corn or nuts," founder Ingrid Hirstin-Lazcano. "With just the right amount of sweetness, and no artificial colors or flavors ever, there's no better way to power an athlete." The cookies, also allergen-friendly, contain no, dairy, eggs, soy, corn or nuts.

Made with Bolivian Royal quinoa, a nutrient-packed super food, these gourmet cookies come in four delicious flavors and are individually wrapped in fully recyclable packaging for easy snacking on the go, or to slip into lunch boxes or backpacks.

Andean Dream's pasta products, in addition to being certified gluten-free and organic, are also corn-free, kosher and vegan -- a great-tasting alternative for those avoiding traditional pasta. A frontrunner in the rapidly expanding quinoa and gluten-free market, Andean Dream was named by Bon Appétit Magazine as "Best Gluten-Free Pasta" and Food & Wine Magazine declared Andean Dream's quinoa pasta as one of their "Top 10 Quinoa Products". The products were most recently featured in the Wall St. Journal.
