We're honoured to have received our second Premiers award for Agri-food Innovation for our 'Gut Shots'. #GoWithYourGut "When Jenna Empey and Alex Currie began offering Gut Shots, people lined up - not for a punch to the stomach, but for 300 millilitres of probiotic-rich tonic that punches up the levels of healthy bacteria in their digestive system. The product proved so popular at farmers' markets that Empey and Currie are now marketing to retail outlets and discussing partnerships with juice companies. The tonic is simply the brine left over from their main activity: producing kimchi, sauerkraut and other fermented foods. This former waste product accounted for 13 per cent of their sales in 2015, and they expect that number to double in 2016. To keep up with demand for the tonic, they've tripled kimchi and sauerkraut production - a boon for local cabbage producers."

Pyramid Ferments was thrilled to be chosen as a Canadian Delegate for the 2014 International Slow Food Gathering/Terra Madre in Turin, Italy.

We enjoyed a fermentation tour of the Czech Republic and then carried on to Italy. It was amazing to meet so many interesting people from all over the world and learn about their traditional agriculture and foods.

Pictured at the Canada booth is Jenna, sampling our fermented Sauerkraut, Kimchi, Kombucha and Gut Shots.
