Company Summary

From a Northern Ontario sustainable forest we harvest maple sugar using unconventional and easily expandable techniques to generate higher quality products at very low costs. Our marketing strategy begins with simple and sure alternatives: bulk sales plus traditional products in traditional markets; however we can rapidly expand so that we have the product to supply larger international markets. Maple sugar demand has always exceeded supply.
