Our Maple Syrup
Maple syrup has been a Canadian tradition for generations, and its popularity continues to enthuse consumers around the world.
Maple Syrup is 100% natural and is harvested only once a year generally during the months of March and April. Absolutely no chemicals, preservatives or additives are used in the production and bottling of our Maple Syrup. More than 70% of the world production of Maple Syrup comes from Quebec, Canada.
Pure Canadian maple syrup also contains 18% of the recommended Daily Value of zinc, which is essential for a healthy immune system. Other minerals found in maple syrup are magnesium, calcium and potassium, decreasing the risk of hypertension or stroke.

Caring for the environment
Because we think it's important to protect the environment, we are constantly searching for new ways to improve our working methods and processes. We also hold several certifications that attest to our environmental commitment. And we believe that small, simple acts can help reduce our collective environmental impact.
We started harvesting maple syrup in 1975 on a 52-acre farm, where we would gather the sap by horse and sleigh, taking it back to the sugar shack. Today, we work with more than 1,000 farmers that are dedicated at harvesting the highest quality maple syrup.
When we started, trees were tapped and buckets were used to collect the maple sap. On a daily basis during the harvest season (March and April), the sap was processed in a wood fired evaporator and concentrated into maple syrup.
Today, the industry uses a modern and cost effective tubing system to tap the trees, which connects the trees to pumping stations. From these stations the sap is collected and pumped to a processing facility. There, it is concentrated using reverse osmosis equipment that separates sugar and water molecules. The concentrated sap is then boiled in large evaporators to become maple syrup.
We have also embraced the emerging organic trend by supporting our farms to be certified organic by Ecocert Canada.
