A little history...
Maple syrup production is an ancient practice that requires respect for nature and a good dose of patience: maple trees don’t produce quality sap until they’re 45 years old! Aboriginal peoples recognized the elixir as a source of energy and nutrition long before Europeans arrived in the New World. Today, we celebrate the sugaring off season each spring, and maple syrup has joined the ranks of tourtière, the jig and ice hockey, as symbols of the “belle province.”
Unique to the forests of eastern North America, maple syrup has become an integral ingredient in Canadian cooking. Affectionately dubbed “sucre du pays” or “country sugar,” maple syrup holds a special place in the hearts of Canadians and fine food enthusiasts worldwide.
LA PETITE CABANE À SUCRE DE QUÉBEC
For generations, the Fortier’s have been operating the family sugar shack in the heart of Quebec’s most productive region for tapping, harvesting and transforming maple sap. The family is proud to be one of the largest maple syrup suppliers on the Canadian market.
In 2012, La Petite Cabane à sucre launched its products abroad, making a splash and stealing the spotlight at Christmas markets in France. Its unique presentation, featuring maple products and their proud Quebec producers, charmed thousands of fans at cooking fairs across France and Belgium. Its popularity in Europe sparked the creation of an online store, LE BON SIROP D’ÉRABLE (www.lebonsiropderable.com), where you’ll find more maple products than you thought possible! The company also carries organic products, beer brewed in Quebec, tasty alcoholic beverages and maple by-products that will delight food-lovers, restaurant owners, pastry chefs and specialty food store owners.
