In 2012 Maple Roch started with 6 barrels. Today we procured over 100 barrels. We have developed a close relationship with 3 maple craftsmen families in New Brunswick by paying a premium price for their exceptional syrup. This arrangement has allowed the families an opportunity to expand their operations and provide a meaningful living for their families. Roch is a Director of the Summerland Food Bank and Resource Centre. His Board passion is to help clients with permanent disabilities find gainful employment. In his role as business owner he can mentor and employ people with disabilities to package and label his maple syrup. Maple Roch is not just a business but a social enterprise.
None of our success could be possible without the tremendous community support of Summerland. Because of hard work and community support Maple Roch has secured a contract with SYSCO Foods, providing high quality Maple Syrup to local chefs. This lucrative contract has solidified our progress and led to the development of new products and brands.
