Founded by leading model Danielle Copperman, Qnola are dedicated to helping people to Wake Up Well™ – developing nourishing food products and creating a lifestyle brand to educate and assist people in their quest to improve their life experiences by starting each day better.

Qnola’s range of nutritionally enhanced breakfast products are made from wholly natural ingredients with the aim of developing a truly healthy alternative to commercial cereals, which are often highly processed and high in sugar, gluten, additives and preservatives. Although many of these products are advertised as ‘skinny’, ‘light’ or ‘low fat’ this doesn’t make them healthy. Qnola’s nourishing ingredients are all wholesome sources of essential vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and sustainable energy. All Qnola products are paleo, vegan and free from refined sugar, wheat, gluten and grains.

As the only purely quinoa-based granola in the world, Qnola have a very unique point of differentiation and no direct competitors. They therefore have a large and rapidly expanding base of potential customers as health and wellbeing products continue to grow in popularity.

With target markets all over the world, CommonwealthFirst looks forward to supporting this ambitious business to find distributors that can help it realise this potential.
