Pure Maple Syrup Powerhouse B&G Foods Leads the Nation as #1 U.S. Bottler of Pure Maple Syrup

Monday, March 12th, 2018

B&G Foods, a pure maple syrup powerhouse, is the largest bottler of pure maple syrup in the United States. Tapping Season is now underway, so it’s time to celebrate and learn more about B&G Foods’ extensive offering of pure maple syrup brands, including: Maple Grove Farms®, Spring Tree®, Cary’s® and MacDonald’s.

Tapping Season, as the maple syrup season is known, is the time when the trees are “tapped” to gather sap which is then boiled in sugar houses to produce maple syrup. It takes 40 gallons of sap to produce one gallon of syrup. Tapping season, which typically lasts about six to eight weeks, ends sometime in April. Weather dictates the length of tapping season - warm days followed by cool nights are needed to get the sap flowing. Once a tree buds, tapping season has come to an end.

Pure maple syrup is just one ingredient, sourced from nature, and contains no high fructose corn syrup and no artificial flavors or colors. Our pure maple syrup is naturally gluten-free and certified kosher. Additionally, pure maple syrup offers inherent benefits of the minerals manganese and zinc.

MacDonald's Pure Maple Syrup

With proprietary blending methods and the highest standards of quality, B&G Foods is proud to offer the largest branded portfolio—nearly six times that of the nearest competitor. Maple masters on staff have an incredible 860 years of combined experience, ensuring that only the best maple syrup is bottled for our leading brands. Our pure maple syrup goes through numerous taste and consistency checks to ensure the highest quality.

With changes in pure maple syrup grading in 2015, all of our pure maple syrup is now Grade A followed by a color and taste qualifier (Golden Delicate, Amber Rich, and Dark Robust). Different grades are best suited for different usage occasions and taste preferences which is why B&G Foods’ portfolio of brands feature different grades and sizes. Additionally, our Maple Grove Farms and Spring Tree brand offer Organic varieties that are USDA or QAI certified and support the sustainable practices of maple syrup farming. For all of our syrups, trees are never tapped in the same place twice, to ensure the health and safety of this renewable resource.

Maple Grove Farms Pure Maple Syrup

Multiple reports have shown the use of maple syrup is on the rise. According to Techonomics, restaurant menus have shown a forty-five percent increase over the past four years in the use of maple syrup. Additionally, maple syrup—a delicious alternative to cane sugar and artificial sweeteners—reflects the alternative sweetener movement that has grown 200 percent in the past four years.

“Pure maple syrup is affectionately called liquid gold,” says Meghan Swatt, Brand Manager, B&G Foods. “It is the secret ingredient to almost every recipe occasion and our brands offer an array of grades and certifications, but one thing always remains—our commitment to quality and consistency. We encourage everyone to explore with our pure maple syrup beyond breakfast—as a sweetener in baking, roasting vegetables, poured over salmon, stirred into a cocktail and even in your morning tea or coffee!”

B&G Food’s portfolio of pure maple syrup brands satisfies every palate and use:

Maple Grove Farms has been making maple products since 1915 and sources syrup from local and well established farms, including trees that have been tapped since the 1700s. Maple Grove Farms offers Golden Delicate and Amber Rich grades as well as Organic varieties of pure maple syrup. Bottled in the maple syrup capital of the United States, St. Johnsbury, Vermont, in a Zero Waste Certified Facility, Maple Grove Farms pure maple syrup is nationally distributed in three sizes: 8.5 fluid oz., 12.5 fluid oz. and 32 fluid oz.
