Today it's all about Panela in Pacto, Ecuador.

Panela is an unrefined cane sugar product used widely in this region. Keith and Christian explore a sugar cane plantation where they get up close and personal with machetes, mountains and the incredible panela.

Exploring where these ingredients come from is the only way for us to continue to grow as a company and as people. We're inspired not only by the flavors, but the people we meet. Their dedication to bringing forward tremendous ingredients pushes us to honor their work in what we do.

Christian has impressed everyone here with his machete and sugar cane grinding skills. We might have to make some room in the facility for one of those sugar cane grinders, that looks like a great workout.
