The Maple Guild is the largest single-source producer of organic maple syrup in the world. By creating a revolutionary process for turning sap-to-syrup, they develop maple-based products ranging from maple cream and maple vinegar to maple-sweetened teas and infused syrups. Their reverse osmosis process, called steam-crafting enables The Maple Guild to produce syrup in just 90 seconds, which creates a pure-tasting maple unlike any you’ve ever had before. For most maple companies, the syrup is the final product. For The Maple Guild, the syrup is just the start.
