The 1,001 Faces of Maple
Maple products are a crossroad where craftsmanship meets culinary art to transform maple sap—this edible gold—into culinary gems, symbolic of our geographic, gastronomic and cultural particularities. The tale of Quebec is told through these maple products in order to bridge its roots with its boundless creativity. And one of the proud representatives of the continued Quebec tradition of maple products is Érablière Tem-Sucre, in Témiscamingue.
Maple vinaigrette, maple butter, granulated maple sugar, maple taffy, maple candy, mini sugar bushes in supermarkets and Bec Cola: these are just a few examples of Tem-Sucre’s commitment and goal to push the creative envelope in order to showcase the 1,001 faces of maple.
Innovation and tradition
Érablière Tem-Sucre manufactures maple products using maple sap that is harvested at its sugar bush and at numerous other Témiscamingue sugar bushes. In fact, it is the only business in Témiscamingue that the Fédération des producteurs de sirop d’érable has designated as an “authorized buyer” of maple sap. It creates innovative regional products from maple sap and offers a wide array of processed products made from Témiscamingue’s own maple sap at 300 points of sale.
In preserving and respecting the traditions of yesteryear and yet without imposing creative limits to maple products, Tem-Sucre has, over the years, successfully developed innovative processing technologies and leading-edge quality control processes. Result: regional maple products whose quality is a standard in the industry.
