Paisanitos® Organic Exotic Sugar comes from the highlands of Pacto, a small town located in Ecuador, near the middle of the world. This incredible product is cultivated by small farmers that have been planting sugar cane for many generations. This is what they do and they take great pride in the way they do it. We know their quality is unparalleled and we decided to work with them to create this wonderful product.

Once harvested, raw sugar canes are taken to the processing plant where the canes are dehydrated by a process that provides its wonderful exotic flavor. During processing, various waste products are generated; however, these are not discarded into the environment as pollutants; they are actually utilized in different phases of production. For example, the "bagazo" (sugar cane after juice has been extracted) is used as fuel for the ovens and the "cachaza" (residual materials from the sugar cane juice) is used to feed animals.

We have stringent quality control in place to ensure the integrity of the process. We hope you enjoy this fabulous product and that you continue to support local and better farming in Latin America.
