Stakeholders in the Quebec maple syrup industry

La Fédération des producteurs acéricoles du Quebec unites some 7,300 maple syrup producers in Quebec. Its mandate is to enhance common resources and create effective tools to assure the quality and shelf-life of maple products. Since February 28, 2002, the Fédération des producteurs acéricoles du Quebec has been the exclusive sales representative of maple farmers. It administers the Sales Agency, that receives and markets maple syrup sold in large containers of more than 5 litres. The goal of this agency is to assure effective and orderly marketing of maple syrup. Through its promotional activities, the Federation and Sales Agency contribute to publicizing Quebec maple products in Quebec and the world and increasing their consumption.

Besides the maple producers represented by the Fédération des producteurs acéricoles du Quebec, there are about one hundred businesses that purchase and process maple syrup in Quebec, forty of which package and process maple products on a large scale every year.

Two detailed documents on the Quebec maple industry produced by the Quebec Ministry of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food may be obtained by the public:
