Che Churros & Empanadas

Let’s take it over to Montreal for the best-tasting traditional Argentinian food from Che Churros & Empanadas. Eduardo and Ariel – both from Argentina and friends since 2007 – have joined forces (and recipes) to cook unique and delicious churros and empanadas. Ultimately, the pair opened a shop for the people of Montreal. Their success would not be possible without the significant contribution of a third partner, Juliana, who in turn, with her versatility and leadership, knew how to earn her place among her creative and passionate partners.

Let’s head over to the sunny coast of California to meet Maeck, a pet food and treat company. Unique to Maeck is that all their pet food and treat ingredients do not include meat. By doing so, Maeck’s products can help reduce methane and carbon emissions, which are contributing factors to global warming. To ensure our doggos get their protein, Maeck uses insect protein – which is quite the appetizing treat for our four-legged friends!
