Sugar workers chew cane during a break from harvesting charred cane in the hot sun. Canes are burned before they are cut because leaves from the plant are so sharp they dull blades of their machetes. The stalks are then loaded on a truck, taken to a mill to be processed into white and brown sugar.
The Pomalca sugar cane coop is located at Campo Rosaliais, Peru.
